It's Fire Prevention Week. Firefighters from the Penfield Fire Department were at St. Joseph's School to teach kids about fire safety.
The children were given a quick fire safety lesson and then got to tour the fire truck and even shoot the fire hose. Some of the older kids got to try on the firefighting gear.
Janet Triplett, Penfield Fire Company, said, "The kids really enjoyed it and as I said especially the older kids being able to actually touch some of the equipment, try on some of the equipment, see how heavy some of our gear is."
Janet Triplett is actually a former teacher at St. Joseph School. She became a firefighter for the first time at the age of 40.
