Assistant Fire Chief Willie Andras talks to participants at the Choctaw Branch Library today for the annual Fire Truck Visit.
Members of the Choctaw Volunteer Fire Department were at the Choctaw Branch Library this afternoon as part of the library's annual 'Fire Prevention Week' program.
Assistant Fire Chief Willie Andras showed the audience the various tools that the fire department uses when responding to calls, and even donned his turnout gear to demonstrate what a fully outfitted firefighter looks like.
After some fire safety tips were given, the audience was invited outside to view our apparatus, which were on display. Members of the audience were given an opportunity to hold the fire hose and spray water from one of the apparatus.
Thanks to Luticia and Jolene -- our community partners at the Choctaw Branch library -- for inviting us over.
