The Riverdale Heights Volunteer Fire Department hosted two dozen Prince George’s County Public School special needs students at its station on Thursday, provided students with fire safety and injury prevention education, according to Prince George’s County Fire Department spokesperson Mark Brady.
Students were given a tour of the ambulance and fire engine, and firefighter medic Brian Mangino gave a demonstration of the protective equipment firefighters wear so students could see and hear what fully suited firefighter looks and sound like.
Kids were also given fire safety and prevention tips by firefighter/medic, Lt. Brian Dougherty.
“Based on the expression on the face of the students, the fire station visit was educational, entertaining and sure to have created those memories,” wrote Brady in a press release.
