Prior to the fire in Bucyrus breaking out, these kids had an experience to climb through the trucks, and see what being a fireman is all about. From spraying the hose to turning on the siren they all had a good time, as well as learning about fire safety. As with all the stations in the area, the firemen are all volunteers. Events like this impart on the students the importance of volunteering, and the training and time spent learning how to keep safe while putting out fires. It is events like these that gain future fire fighters.
