Mattawa District Public School Students visit the Mattawa Fire Hall

Mattawa District Public School jk and sk students visited the Mattawa fire hall on Tuesday, June 12th, 2018.

The children, teachers, and adult supervisors were greeted by Deputy Fire Chief Paul Dupras and firefighter Mathew Gardiner.

There were many questions about the gear that the firefighters wear, the ice water rescue equipment, and the fire trucks. But, most importantly, many of the children wanted to know where Sparky was; unfortunately, Sparky was busy and could not be there to share their visit. The children were very excited to get in the trucks and look at the equipment.

It certainly looked like they enjoyed their visit! Everyone left smiling wearing their very own fire hat!

The children made a card and sent it to the fire department thanking the firefighters for the visit.
