Thursday, we had a fieldtrip to the LSU Fire and Emergency Training Institute (FETI).
Before starting the fieldtrip, we took a group shot.
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.
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 fire truck today like we did in 2010 (another post from 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.
