On October 4th, Our Lady of Trust Catholic Academy got ready for fire prevention week 2016 with a surprise visit from our local NYC fire department, Ladder Company 170. Our younger students, from Pre K-3 through grade 2 were lucky enough to experience up close the special work our FDNY members do on a daily basis.
Each of these classes had the opportunity to join our local heroes on the fire trucks, observe the inside of the trucks, see the equipment first hand, sit in the ‘driver’s seat’, and even hold and use the fire hose!
Ladder Company 170 was so generous to share their time with us. I believe that our children will hold on to this memory for the rest of their lives. We are truly thankful! It was an amazing experience for everyone!
