MFCA and Cultural Care Au Pairs
On Tuesday the 8th of February, the Merion Fire Company hosted 45 au pairs from Europe, South America and Central America at the station for their annual fire safety training which is required for them to continue to work in the United States. Members of the company presented a class on fire safety in the home environment for the au pairs and then had them crawl through a smoke filled corridor on the second floor of the station.
After completion of the class the au pairs got a tour of truck room and the apparatus, which they seemed to enjoy.
The au pairs live and work for families in Lower Merion, Haverford Township and Radnor, and are in the United States for a maximum of two years. There employment is coordinated by Cultural Care Au Pairs which is an Ardmore based business.
