Children visiting Public Safety Day at an Aboite Road fire station did more than wear red, plastic helmets; the kids actually extinguished fires. Safety officer Denis Pauze told kids how to direct the spray as they aimed a hose at a propane fire box. “Hit low, swing back and forth,” he said. Jonathan Baltes watched as Will, 6, and Greta, 5, put out the fires. Just in case, Pauze held a cut-off switch. Ethan Dwyer, 4, and his sister Naomi, 2, got a close-up look at a Lutheran Air helicopter, thanks to flight nurse Luann McKinley. Allen County Police Department Officer Brandon Reichert brought K-9 officer Zara, 4, to meet the public. Aboite Township Volunteer Fire Department firefighters demonstrated how to dismantle a car to remove someone who is trapped in the car after a collision. Guests browsed public safety equipment, shopped at a silent auction, and bought up 900 half-chickens from Nelson’s Port-a-Pit. The event was a fundraiser for equipment and training.
