Sparky Goes To School

On October 10, members of the Susquehanna Fire Dept. held a Fire Prevention and Awareness program at the Susquehanna Community Elementary School and the Susquehanna Fire Station.

The presentation was conducted by fire fighter Steve Frederick, along with his special assistant, "Sparky," who is a stuffed animal firefighter from the National Fire Prevention Association and the main speaker for Mr. Frederick. The kindergarten and first grade students loved Sparky’s audio/visual presentation on fire safety and prevention.

Fire fighters, dressed in full "turn out" gear showed the children how to escape a smoke filled, burning building, and not to be afraid of the sight and sound that a fire fighter in full gear presents during an emergency rescue.

A fire truck and ambulance from the Susquehanna Fire Dept. was on display. The children were allowed to get into the fire truck and look at all the equipment on the truck. A hit with the children was when the fire truck was pumping water out the hose and from the deck gun.

The same presentation was given at the fire station to the first grade in the afternoon.

Assisting Frederick was Ambulance Captain David Scales, Sr.; fire fighters Damion Scales and Jeremy Krall.
