The Prophetstown Fire Protection District hosted Prophetstown Elementary students recently at the Prophetstown Station to review fire safety tips, demonstrate equipment, tour the facility, and try on firefighting equipment.
"The fifth graders helped us come up with stations, gave ideas for prizes, made all of the posters, and made the flyer that we sent home to the students. The day of the carnival, they spent the morning helping us get everything set up. They also each worked at a station for half of the time," Grady said.
The Cub Scouts made 64 goodie bags with candy treats inside for each staff member along with a fun saying that explains the meaning behind the types of candy included.
