Firefighter Al Visits Second Grade

Macdonough School second graders got a special treat on Thursday, January 8th. After reading stories all week about Fire Safety, Firefighter Al from the Middletown Fire Department visited.

He showed the students all the specialized gear that firefighters use and he reminded students how to prevent fires and how to be safe around fire. Did you know that a firefighter's gear weighs 100 pounds? And that a room can be over 1,000 degrees in a fire?

The second graders got to ask Firefighter Al some excellent questions and everyone enjoyed his visit.
