Fire Prevention Week Oct. 5 - 11, 2008

On Friday, Oct. 10, 2008, EAFD provided a day of Fire Prevention and Fun for almost 50 youngsters and about a-dozen-and-half parents and teachers from St. John's Nursery School, Bath, and The Wonder Kids Day Care Center, Weaversville.  The kids learned about Fire Prevention Week, and how a firefighter looks if he (or she) comes into their house in full gear.  In addition they saw various household items that could cause fires or burns.  Everyone got to look at fire trucks and equipment and see the aerial ladder in operation.  At the end, all the youngsters got to try their hand at operating an actual fire hose and nozzle.  A good time was had by all, including the firefighters.
