I'm sure many of us remember the time that we got to ride on the fire truck as a child. That was the highlight of our little lives up until that point. It was also for the Vinton-Shellburg Elementary students on Thursday. The first round of fire trucks to take off included five trucks one of which was the Pink Heals pink fire truck.
Altogether the department gave around a dozen truck rides to the kids. The volunteer department arranged to be away from their jobs to come out to the school, yet another day this week and provide students with a fun to wrap up to Fire Prevention Week.
The sirens across town sounded tonight at 7:00 p.m. for families to participate in Operation E.D.I.T.H. as well, and the fire department went out again.
