Children's Village gets grant

April 11, 2007

Recently representatives of the American Legion, Child Welfare Foundation of Maryland, presented Children's Village of Washington County with a grant of $2,450 to replace a broken smoke machine in the Smoking Doll House exhibition.

The funds will also pay for the purchase of a backup smoke machine, said Rochelle Morrell, executive director of Children's Village.

As part of the fire safety curriculum, Children's Village instructors use the doll house as a tool to show students how quickly deadly smoke can travel through a burning house.

Closed doors can keep smoke out of a room long enough for the occupant to escape while open doors allow the smoke to fill the room instantly.
