Young students at the Child Care Center on Vance-Granville Community College’s Franklin County Campus recently celebrated Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 9-13). Special guests at the five-star child day care during the week included the “Fire Pup,” “Smokey the Bear,” and Capt. Ramey Seal from the Louisburg Fire Department. Seal brought a fire truck for the children to see and showed them his turnout gear while also teaching them about fire safety rules. Pictured, seated on the front of the truck are, from left, Lincoln Wood, Josephine Stover, Hayden Forrest, Brayden Wood, Paxton Lester, Emily Dickerson, Aubrey Hoyle, Lila Johnson, Macie Collins and Bates Shearin; and, standing, from left, are Keira Overby, Jayden Durham and Jonathan Gupton.
