Van Vleck Fire Department Visits the Elementary
October 09, 2013
The Van Vleck Volunteer Fire Department visited the Elementary School and gave them lessons on Fire Safety. Fire Chief, Meredith Keelan, even gave the children the opportunity to practice covering a fire with a blanket to help save a fire victim.
The students also got to see and hear what a real fireman will look and sound like with full equipment on, including breathing with the aid of a oxygen tank. Several students commented that "it sounded like Darth Vader".
