Students from across Butler County came to the Butler County Community College fire science building today. They are part of a School to Career program, a program that gives students a snapshot of the fire service, law enforcement, emergency management, and dispatch.
Captain Max Brown, Lt. Jack Zimmerman, and Firefighters Quentin Sage, Curtis Pollard, and Sam Aitchison provided the instruction. Other than a small introduction the major part of the morning was spent doing hands on activities.
Students handled water lines, raised ladders, and performed self-contained air pack escape drills. The group was enthusiastic and did a great job. And so did the firefighters.
