Fire Truck Day at Special Friends Summer Camp brings delight

Fire Department brings fire truck to Special Friends CampAt Warm Beach Special Friends Camp, summer camp for special needs adults, “Fire Truck Day” is a highlight.

One day each week of Camp, the local Fire Department brings the fire truck and aid car to Special Friends Camp for the campers to climb in and explore. The campers get in the driver’s seat, get to sound the horn, blare the siren, and the big moment… they get to turn on the fire hose!

The firefighters help one camper at a time open up the nozzle and let the full blast of water shoot out of the hose onto the ground in front of them. The campers think it’s a blast! Last week, one camper came quietly up to the hose with her “buddy” (volunteer helper) as the fireman smiled and patiently talked her through turning on and off the hose. When finished, she put down the hose and ran over and gave him a big hug. Then she did a little dance of joy. “I did it!” She squealed. Later, she came back to the fireman and asked him to autograph her water bottle. It was the highlight of her day!
