It's pretty awesome that we gather in community to learn, grow and imbibe way more than we could imagine on our own. Caroleeena Circles of Joy from Raleigh North Carolina is one powerful source of information, not to mention a captivating writer and dancer. On Hoop City, Caroleeena is consistently quoted or referenced every time there is a new question posed to the group. We'd like to jump on that train here at Synergy Firehoops, to link to her brilliant and comprehensive post on fire safety...

She says:
