On October 9, the Story Time kids from Pettee Memorial Library visited the Wilmington firehouse to learn about fire safety during Fire Prevention Week.
Lt. Bobby Maynard took us on a tour of the fire station and let us climb up in the fire trucks.
We got to see what a firefighter dressed up looks like, practiced “Stop, Drop and Roll” and learned this year’s theme: ”Every second counts, know two ways out!”
We finished our visit with a story read by Lt. Maynard’s daughter, Kyrrah. Natalie was a big help, too. Lt. Maynard gave us a special fire helmet and a coloring book all about fire safety. We had a great time!
Thank you so much, Lt. Maynard, Kyrrah, Natalie, and the Wilmington Fire Department.
