Today we had a fieldtrip to the LSU Fire and Emergency Training Institute (FETI).
Micah & Sarah before
Before starting the fieldtrip, we took a group shot. I went prepared with my tripod & remote.
Then we went inside and Crew Chief Crain told the kids general information about fire safety: smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and safety ladders for upstairs.
Can you tell who's not paying attention?
Then we watched the following video to see examples of some of the training is done.
Then he had 3 recruits come in and do a 2 minute drill to see who could get their gear on the fastest.
Afterwards, the kids got to talk to the firemen in their gear and take pictures with them.
I wonder what Cade & Luke are talking about.
When we were finished talking with the firemen, we went outside to see the LSU firetruck.
We weren't able to see a burn or ride in the firetruck today like we did in 2010, but they gave us a ride on the trailer around the facilities.
The guy in the following video was the one who was in charge of our fieldtrip.
