Firefighters for the Day

Firefighters for the Day  thumbnail138701

Students from Duffield Elementary School recently traded in their notebooks and pencils for fire hats and extinguishers when they became firefighters for the day during their recent visit to the Lakeland Fire Department. After an informative safety demonstration courtesy of firefighter Juan and firefighter Brian, the students were invited to explore three stations at the fire house. The stations included a guided trek through the smokehouse simulator, a visit to the Garden of Heroes to pay respects to 9/11 victims, and an in-depth look into the tools which are housed within the sides of the fire engines.
