Learning the basics

Friday, October 8, 2010

Members of the Van Buren Township Volunteer Fire Department visited Van Buren Elementary Friday to demonstrate to the third-grade students some of the tools they use when battling a fire. The demonstration was the conclusion of Fire Prevention Week. Firefighter Dan Mitten held the fire hose as students learned how the hose works. Students were also given the opportunity to use a breathing mask and learn the basic controls of the fire truck. Kimberly Gleason Photo.
