During Fire Prevention Week, many local schools invite the nearest fire station to drop by the school to teach the students about fire safety as well as show off the fire truck.
Fire Station 28, Seven Corners, B-Shift was invited to a local school to do just that. Captain Griffin and crew dropped by on Wednesday and provided a little show and tell for the youngsters at the Congressional School. Students got to meet the firefighters who protect them as well as tour the fire truck and see the tools they use.
The big hit was watching one of the firefighters get dressed up in the gear a firefighter must wear when they go into a burning building. It also helps the younger children understand that underneath all of that gear, that may appear scary to them, is actually a friendly firefighter there to help!
