Learning About Our First Responders Continues…

Dawn Stuckey, 4-H Youth Development Agent – Colleton and Hampton Counties

Hampton County 4-H Club visited the Hampton Fire Station to learn more about fire safety and the live at the fire station. Hampton County Fire Chief, Greg Cook, Captain Dylan Brabham, and Lieutenant Tyler Nix opened the bays and doors for youth to investigate the incredible equipment they use for fires and rescues. Members spent time on rescue trucks and fire apparatus to learn the difference between those vehicles. We even learned about the training equipment firemen use to stay in shape so they will be able to lift heavy equipment and carry people to safety. It was a fun time and members appreciated the opportunity to see how the equipment works, especially the Jaws of Life! Thank you to our Firemen for taking time to share what you do with the next generation.  This was definitely a “Learn by Doing” experience.
