Tour and Lunch with the Brampton Fire Department

Of course it’s fun to win the “big” prizes, but sometimes it’s all about the “experience”…something that money can’t necessarily buy. I recently had the opportunity to spend the day with the Brampton Fire department. Bright and early, we met at the Fire/Life Safety Education Centre. Numerous school groups visit throughout the year learning about fire safety in the home. We then headed to a 911 dispatch to see how that process works…and arrived in style with Sparky!

From there, we visited Brampton’s last fire pole and of course had a photo-op.

After a pizza lunch, it was time for the main event…. trying on the gear! It’s a lot heavier than I thought it was going to be.

We also toured the fire station and fire truck to see all of its equipment. It’s quite an impressive vehicle!
