Allapattah Flats first graders get fire safety tips

First graders at Allapattah Flats K-8 are investigating about fire safety with the help of retired Indian River County Fire Department Battalion Chief John Freeman.  Mr. Freeman read an informational text about firefighters and their responsibilities. He also brought his bunker gear including a helmet, boots, pants, coat, and gloves to show the first graders how firefighters stay safe. Students vigorously asked him questions about his gear, job, and his bravery.
