The Fort Mill Fire Department recently spoke to the Greater Bethlehem Baptist Youth Group in Fort Mill.
Not only did The youngsters learned about firefighting as an occupation and received safety tips. Despite the hot day, one of the firefighters put on all his gear for the children to see.
“His vivid illustration was to make the point that if they were trapped in a fire and through the smoke and fire they see someone dressed like him, sounding like Darth Vader, coming toward them, that he was nothing to be scared of, but the important reason to go towards the hollow sounding voice, because he was there to help them,” said Kevin Saunders, one of the adults who works with the youth group.
“I thought that was the greatest learning tip/example I’ve seen in a long time.”
