Children had the chance to observe, learn about and explore various vehicles Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Nisswa Fire Department's Kids Touch a Truck event at the fire hall.
Attendees were able to inspect an ambulance, squad car, snowplow and fire truck - including its fire hose.
They also witnessed a kitchen fire demonstration and learned how to operate a fire extinguisher at the event held during Fire Prevention Week.
Following that event, attendees could simply walk next door to the community center in the afternoon for the fire department’s first barbecue contest. Proceeds from the event went to the Nisswa Fire Department.
