Semmes Fire Rescue Accepts ABC Kindergarten Challenge: Semmes Fire Training Center - Friday, March 17, 2017

Firefighters Accept ABC Kindergarten Challenge

Early this morning Semmes Fire Rescue, with backup from Mobile Fire Department, greeted an onslaught of 140 children, 77+ accompanying family members, kindergarten teachers and numerous support personnel. All converged on the Semmes Fire Training Center to view a fire-fighting demonstration by their local fire-fighting heros and participate in a little hands-on training with fire-fighting equipment. The 200+ group were on a field trip scheduled by ABC Kindergarten, a learning preschool and kindergarten in Semmes Alabama.   Children and adults alike learned about fire safety and got to explore fire vehicles and equipment. Semmes Sparky mingled with the kids while other firefighters donned full rescue gear (boots, gloves, goggles, helmet, hood, etc.) while wide-eyed children watched with curious eyes.

Four Steps to Tornado Preparedness

Four Steps to Tornado Preparedness

Tornadoes develop so rapidly that little, if any, advance warning is possible. Every state has some risk of this hazard. Tornadoes are nature’s most violent storms. Spawned from powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes can cause fatalities and devastate a neighborhood in seconds. A tornado appears as a rotating, funnel-shaped cloud that extends from a thunderstorm to the ground with whirling winds that can reach 300 miles per hour. Damage paths can be in excess of one mile wide and 50 miles long.
