Yesterday, we took a fieldtrip to the LSU Fire and Emergency Training Institute (FETI).
First we watched a video set to music. The video showed different shots taken during the academy.
Then 4 recruits did a 2-minute drill where they had 2 minutes to get all of their gear on. Afterwards, the kids were allowed to talk to the firemen dressed in their gear and to check it out. The captain told them not to be afraid of them even though they sounded like Darth Vader.
Some of the equipment we saw around the complex.
On the way there I saw this
We got to watch the burn from a couple of different angles.

Then Miriam, Levi, Micah and I rode in the LSU one on the last trip around the complex.
Thanks to the captains and their recruits for a great fieldtrip!
