Lately the interns have been learning how to keep a safe home and ways to help prevent fires and accidents in the home. So last Wednesday (10/2) YAT went to the south fire station in Brookings and met with fire fighter Pete. Pete showed the interns a few of the different types of fire trucks they have at that station and the many different types of things they have to keep inside the trucks. Interns even saw the city's new Snowbulance! Most importantly, Pete gave an excellent presentation on fire prevention/safety at home and taught the interns such things as feeling a warm the door with the back of their hand instead of the palm. Pete also had a great video game simulation that taught interns how to use an extinguisher properly.
