NATIVITY B.V.M. High School of Pottsville, helps Reading Fire Department
Thu. May 14th 2020

As the dangers and lethality of COVID-19 became apparent, so did the lack of proper PPE. Many public safety groups began to put out the call for assistance from any outlet they could. While some places were unable to help, Nativity BVM of Pottsville was more than willing to help the Reading Fire Dept. It has been over 20 years since RFD’s very own Michael J. Sninsky'96 has been in the building, but regardless the high school immediately responded to the request for supplies and generously donated several sets of protective eye wear for the EMS division to wear on high risk calls. Even though Nativity is located in Schuylkill County, the support they gave the City of Reading Fire Department is tremendous! THANK YOU!
