Gering Fire spoke to over 300 kids about fire safety.

Their firefighters were teaching the difference between a tool and toy and the importance of a fire escape plan.

Students also learned what a firefighter looked like and making sure they were not afraid of a firefighter.

They were even given rides on their 1929 American LaFrance.

They say it’s a great way to spread their message and the best way to stop a fire before it ever happens.
