Engine 2 Visits EAK Class at Riverview Elementary

Lakeside: On Friday, March 11, 2011, Lakeside Firefighters payed a visit to the EAK class at Riverview Elementary School. Many of these pre-K students said this was their first time being able to see and touch a fire engine up close; a very exciting time for them indeed.

Firefighter-Paramedic Bryan Peters shows Engine 2 to a very attentive class.
 These young students were introduced to the importance of fire safety, stop drop and roll, EDITH ( exit drills in the home), and the job of a firefighter. The kids many questions showed they are never too young to begin learning about the dangers of fire.

Bryan shows the kids the gear used by firefighters when fighting fires.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this well-behaved and curious group of kids.
    It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to interact with them at such a young and open-minded age.
