Fincastle Fire and Rescue visited Troutville Elementary’s kindergarten class on Friday, Oct. 12. Firefighter Jeff put his gear on for the students to see what he would look like so they wouldn’t be afraid of them in a rescue situation. Firefighter Joey set a smoke detector off to let the children hear what it sounds like, and they had to crawl under a sheet that represented smoke. After, they went outside to see the firetruck and was able to hear the siren as they drove off. Thank you, Firefighter Joey and Jeff.
