Manhattan Fire Department embraces community for fire education

Although the fun had to stay inside, there was still plenty to learn for National Fire Prevention Week.

But the firefighters say it was more of a way for them to give back.

“There would be no fire department without the community,” said Gregg De Creek.

Kids got a taste for what it’s like to take a step in firefighters boots by testing their strength with a firefighter rescue.

The Junction City Fire Department lent this fire safety house to teach kids what to do if they’re ever caught in a fire.

There’s one truck that may catch your eye, and it’s not just because of it’s bright green color.This truck holds more water than a typical firetruck, along with special foam and a dry chemical agent.

And a family favorite, the department’s mascot, Frankie the Fireman was there for all the fun as well.
