Lakeside Engine 3 and Medic 3 Visit Lakeview Elementary

Lakeview: The crew from the Lake Jennings Station (#3) had the opportunity to visit with the first graders from Mrs. Zmijewski's class at Lakeview Elementary School. This was an opportunity to mix a little safety message, career guidance, with.....well fun!

The class had the opportunity to see the equipment used by firefighters as part of their job. The kids had the opportunity to don turnout gear, and tour the interior of Medic 3.

These first graders had some great questions......thanks for the invitation.

The kids got to put on structural firefighting gear. The consensus was that it's "heavy"..

The class got to see the paramedic equipment on the apparatus.

We even managed to get Mrs "Z" (Zmijewski) in the back of the medic unit.
