During Fire Prevention Week, a lieutenant from the local fire department spoke to students of Des Moines Adventist School about fire safety. He also shared what it’s like to live the life of a firefighter and showed students some of their gear for fighting fires, water and toxic rescue.

One student had the opportunity to try on some gear and noted how heavy it was. Students had many questions and enjoyed their time with the lieutenant. Des Moines Adventist School is thankful to all of those who keep our community safe.
