Photo: Emergency preparedness day at Pembroke Primary School

By Howard B. Owens

Volunteer firefighters from several companies turned out to Pembroke Primary School today as part of East Pembroke's annual effort to educate students on emergency preparedness.

Eleven trucks rolled up to the school first thing this morning, with all the sirens, horns and flashing lights the children could hope for.

Most of the trucks stayed at the campus throughout the school day and classes of children took turns touring the rigs.

Firefighters also provided information on emergency preparedness.

This was my favorite day of the year when I went to this school. I just graduated from Pembroke this year, so they have been doing this for a while now. The best part was when they had an assembly with the entire school in the gym and turned off the lights to show us what firefighters would look like in the dark. Great memories!!!
