VIDEO: The pandemic caused a lot of events and activities to transition to virtual platforms.
Sioux Falls Fire Rescue got creative when the pandemic hit, taking their fire education program virtual.
“We weren’t allowed to get into the classrooms. So we’ve got a virtual program now. So we sit down with the kids virtually, they watch a short program and then we interact with the kids. We answer questions, they ask us questions,” Sioux Falls Fire Rescue fire inspector Tyler Tjeerdsma said. First through 4th graders across KELOLAND participated in the program that covered topics including escape plans all the way to how to call 9-1-1.
And the takeaway has been great.
