Getting a feel for the job

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Kindergarten students from Berryville Schools visited the Berryville fire station where they learned about fire safety, crawled through a smoke-filled room and took turns shooting water from a fire hose. Havin Snow was having her turn, assisted by retired fire chief Gene Chafin. Many retired volunteer firefighters return to the station house each year during Fire Prevention Week to host the annual tour, which has been taking place the past 20 years. The kindergarten students visit in the morning and the firefighters take their show to the school in the afternoon to visit with second graders.
