Recently companies 33 and 32(Walnuttown) visited the Richmond Elementary School for fire prevention week. The members visited the classrooms and explained the importance of fire safety and how to handle an emergency and be safe. The students also got to see some of the firefighters gear up to see what they look and sound like before headed out to see the trucks. The members from both companies finished the day by having lunch with the students and signing firefighter autographs. A thank you to Fleetwood School District and Walnuttown Fire Company for letting us come out again for another great year!
