On October 15th, we celebrated Fire Prevention Week with Firefighter for a Day.
Sarah Walker, Kevin Meyer, and Liam Balch were selected from Grand Valley Public School to attend with their parents for an evening of experiencing some of the tasks performed by our Firefighters.
After gearing them up in protective coveralls, helmets, gloves, safety glasses and helmets, Sarah, Kevin and Liam had a tour of the station and the trucks. They then had some hands on experience with auto extrication equipment and hoses, a demonstration of how a door is removed from a car in an accident and finally a ride in our front line pumper.
Below are some pictures of the evening.
