Fire Truck Day

As the sirens roared and the lights flashed on the Butler City Fire Truck as it pulled into Butler Catholic School’s parking lot, our students clapped and cheered to begin Fire Truck Day!  Monday, October 17th was Butler Catholic School’s Annual Fire Truck Day.  For the last 15 years the Butler City Fire Department has brought a fire truck to school in order to promote and discuss fire safety with our preschool, kindergarten and first grade students.   Traci Riston, Kindergarten teacher and organizer of the day’s event said, “This is such an exciting day for our students, as they are able to see a “real” fire truck up close and person.  I personally love how the firemen dress up in their gear and talk to the children about not being afraid of them if they were ever in that situation.”   We are so thankful for the Butler City Fire Department in how they serve our community, and their commitment to teaching our young people about fire safety.
