Ava Head Start visited the Squires Volunteer Fire Department on Monday, May 19. Mrs. Doris Pinckney and her assistants brought 15 children to learn about fire safety. The children took turns going through the trucks and sounding off the sirens. They also learned about the equipment on the trucks, and what everything is used for. The children then saw what medical responders do and how they can help in an emergency. Toward the end of their visit, they shot water at targets from the fire hose and finished their morning riding the rides. Everyone had a great time and they encourge other classes to visit.
