March 23, MercyOne kids class on Fire Safety: Dan White went to MercyOne to do a class for the preschool kids. It is a very important aspect of our job as firefighters to introduce some of our equipment so that in an emergency, young children aren't scared. He also talked about fire safety and explained some of the many things firefighters and EMS personnel do for the community.
