Exeter Junior Fire Patrol Learns about Fire Extinguishers

One of the key tools that the Exeter Volunteer Fire Department uses to fight arson among young people is the Junior Fire Patrol program.  Four nights during the month of October the fifth grade students at Exeter-Milligan school are invited to learn all about fire prevention and fire fighting tools at the Exeter Fire Department.  During their meeting on Tuesday, October 8th the participants got a lesson on fire extinguishers from Nebraska State Deputy Fire Marshall Ray Nance.  They learned how the chemicals work to put out a fire, and how to properly employ them in dousing a fire.  Pictured are Deputy Fire Marshall Ray Nance, jr fire patrol candidates Jackson Beethe, Jaiden Papik (middle) and Georgia Meyer.
