The Montpelier Fire Department met with Head Start through 2nd graders at Montpelier Elementary on October 17th. Fire Chief Dale Fritsch, along with a couple of Montpelier firefighters, met with the students to let them know that firefighters are their friends and will help rescue them in the event of an actual fire. After discussing and explaining the importance of fire protocols and safety, the fire department took the students outside to show them a handful of the town’s fire fleet. Students were able to observe the trucks, ask questions, tour inside, and they even were able to see the ladder in action. The students learned a lot and had a great time!
