The Crown Point Fire Department made a special trip to visit the preschool students at St. Mary Catholic Community School. The students were shown an up close and personal view of a fire truck. Students were also given some important safety tips. The firefighter friends talked about the importance of practicing for a fire drill not only in school but also at home in the event of an emergency. They also demonstrated what would happen if a child had to be rescued from a fire. Emma Trendowski did a wonderful job assisting in being an example of what a firefighter would do, to get her to safety. The St. Mary’s students were able to see the different compartments and components of a firetruck. The kids were very excited to learn about the importance of what our firefighters do for our school and community.
