Firefighters from Downey's fire station No. 1 played host to second graders from Alameda Elementary last week, teaching them about what a day in the life of a firefighter is all about. The children learned about the dispatch process, how the firefighters stay fit and healthy, the different types of equipment used when responding to calls, and the importance of staying in school and being life-long learners. ********** Published: April 30, 2010 - Volume 9 - Issue 2
