Wheel You Show Me Your Fire Truck

The Shippensburg Fire Department takes an active roll in fire safety education during the year, but during fire prevention week they get very busy.

These photographs were taken on October 4, 2007 during activities conducted at Nancy Gracen Elementary School. The children go outside and learn about the different types of fire apparatus before going inside and learning about fire safety. Charles Myers Chief Emeritus of the Vigilant Hose Company explains to kids why a firefighter wears breathing apparatus and not to be afraid if they see someone dressed that way.

Cool pics. That guy standing next to the engine looks like a giant. Is he really that tall?
