Campers to transform into firefighters for a day

Citrus County, Florida-- The Citrus County Sheriff’s Fire Rescue is hosting a Junior Firefighter Training Day this Friday to give young ones a glimpse at a day in the life of a fireman.

Ark Angles Day Camp students between five and nine-years-old will  have the chance to gear up and transform into firefighters for the day. They’ll learn all about fire safety and what they can do to help their families in case of an emergency.

Organizers say the students will get a tour of the Fire Safety House- a small, two bedroom home used to demonstrate fire evacuation and safety procedures- and then run fire escape drills, experience a “hot” door with smoke obscuring their escape, and also learn about kitchen safety, smoke detector usage, electrical safety and other fire and safety training.

Lunch, a coloring contest, a crawl-through maze, a movie and t-shirt giveaways are also planned for this day of fire fighting fun!
