In celebration of our Summer Reading Program theme “Every Hero Has a Story,” the real-life heroes of the El Paso Fire Department’s Fire Station 20 came to give a presentation to the children at the Jose Cisneros Cielo Vista Branch Library.
They taught the children the proper situation in which to call 911 (if there is a real emergency). They also showed off all the features of their truck and the protective gear they wear when they fight fires.
The kids got to go up on the fire truck and to try on some of the gear the firefighters use.
The presentation had to end a little early when the firefighters had to leave on a call, but it gave the kids a chance to see them in action and for the firefighters to demonstrate the lights and sirens as they drove away! Everyone still had a wonderful time, and we hope to have these wonderful firefighters back again sometime in the future!
