United States Forest Service firefighters visit Edahow

United States Forest Service firefighters visit Edahow

The United States Forest Service (USFS) firefighters recently made a visit to Edahow Elementary School. They hosted three different sessions based on grade-levels. The USFS firefighters had several interesting and informative stations that learners got to participate in. They learned about aging trees (and were able to spend time aging trees themselves) forest fire prevention and the effects of forest fires on the flora and fauna. Additionally, they were able to see what gear firefighters use and even did a little spraying with the fire hoses. It was an awesome event and made possible by the generosity of the USFS.
