Junior Fire Patrol tests new skills

May 3, 2012

A one alarm fire on a cardboard house is brought under control by members of the Broken Bow Junior Fire Patrol

A Class A fire (a fire that produces ash) was quickly brought under control Thursday evening by the ever diligent members of the Junior Fire Patrol. The long-standing tradition sponsored by the Broken Bow Fire Department invites fifth graders to spend six Thursday evenings at the department learning about fire safety.

May 3, the students put out their own ‘house fires,’ after moving themselves and younger siblings to a safe meeting space and pretending to call 911. Next week the students will conclude their training with a party and a ‘test.’

See next week’s Chief for more on Broken Bow’s Junior Fire Patrol program.

For now, watch Junior Firefighters in action.
