|Fire Prevention Week celebrated in Grant|
Brionne White of the Grant Fire Department shakes hands and gives out some ‘high fives’ to students during a special Fire Prevention Week presentation at the school on Oct. 9.
Grant firefighter Harlan Rahn showed students at Perkins County Elementary some of the tools used by the fire department and the gear worn by firefighters. He let students ‘knock’ him on the helmet to show how much protection the helmet provides.
Demonstrating how firefighters may have to crawl through tight spaces during a structure fire, Harlan Rahn crawled around the gymnasium floor at Perkins County Elementary to shake hands with youngsters and show off his fire suit.
