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.

Family Escapes Flaming Home

A Sullivan Road family fled their burning home some time shortly after 7:00 p.m. last night, Friday, March 3, 2017. Chief Kevin Brooks of Semmes Fire Rescue stated that upon arrival, fire fighters found the home’s occupants safely outside the home which sustained heavy fire damage. Semmes Fire Rescue had the flames beat down within 4 minutes and no calls were made for assistance. The state fire marshal was called in to investigate the cause of the fire.
