HERKIMER, N.Y. -- 30 years ago, six children died in a house fire and one organization has made it their mission to ensure this never happens again.
After the six McCleod children tragically died in a house fire in Little Falls 30 years ago, the founders of the "Never Again" project began to promote fire safety ahead of fire safety month in October.
The project plans to go into third grade classrooms and discussing how to promote fire safety at home.
Then students can enter in the half and half fire safety contest.
For example -- Peggy the Pegaroo, half peacock, half kangaroo.
"Fire preventation as we know everyone has gone through. As far as different homes without protection, I believe as far as getting the community involved and protecting the properties that they own and saving. You know we lost six beautiful little ones a number of years back and we don't want that to happen again", says Rudolph Scialdo, member of the Never Again project
"Never Again" wants to remind you to install smoke detectors and to practice your fire escape plan at least once a year.
