Spring Fire to Hold its First Special Day for Special People
On Saturday morning (October 13) from 10 to noon, the Spring Fire Department is holding its first Special Day for Special People at Station 71 at 656 E. Louetta.
“We will have sensory friendly activities for people of all ages with different levels of abilities,” said Spring Assistant Fire Chief Robert Logan. “We have been coordinating with special needs educators and organizations in our community to plan the activities such as coloring and craft stations where participants can color and put together a cardboard fire engine to take home.”
“We also have a small red house that our facilities manager built that participants can shoot water at — just like a firefighter putting out a house fire,” Logan added.
“Spring firefighters will demonstrate our equipment and gear and because this is a special day, we will be rolling out Virtual Reality programs of our fire trucks so those with mobility issues can see inside a fire engine and our tower truck.”
HEB and Blue Bell are providing refreshments.
“We are excited to serve all in our fire district and that includes people with challenges,” said Logan.
