A group of pre-school children met at the Child Care Resource and Referral centre, to learn about fire trucks.

Around 15 kids got to climb up in the fire trucks and ask plenty of questions on Wednesday morning. Firefighters from the Fort St. John Fire Department were on hand to show the kids everything from special flashlights to ‘the jaws of life.’

Captain Greg Nicoll reminded the kids to tell their parents to check all the smoke detectors in their homes.

All October, fire crews will be out in full force to educate the public on fire and burn prevention.
