Over 40 kids, parents or guardians participated in Alpine Township Library's "Story Time" this morning, learning all about public service related jobs such as firefighter, police officer, mail carrier, etc.
Both kids and adults were surprised by the visit of a real firefighter in a real firetruck who not only showed all the equipment on the truck, but demonstrated the gear that firefighters wear that almost makes them look like an alien from outer space. The kids especially enjoyed the opportunity to climb inside the truck. Alpine Township Firefighter and Rescue Captain Tim Schweitzer passed out wristbands and coloring books.
