Jack Flanagan, chief and fire marshal of the Hazardville Fire Department and Don Ellis, a captain in the Enfield Fire Department are quintessential firefighters: dedicated, professional, and ready to respond to any fire crisis. Not many people would associate firefighters with the joyful faces of kindergarteners. But this is Enfield, where small town warmth leads to community involvement. To those who know Jack and Don, it’s no surprise that they and their fellow firefighters are part of a successful effort, initiated through William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund by Discovery grant dollars to promote early childhood education.
