VIDEO: Its an annual tradition at Fire District 9, Demo Day as its called for the awe-inspiring firefighting demonstrations put on throughout the day. "All the district personnel enjoy putting it on," said Division Chief Nathan Jeffries. He says its an opportunity to connect with their community, teach kids about fire safety and put on a little bit of a show while doing it. "We can look pretty scary when we are all geared up, and we don't want the kids to be scared of that," he said, in explaining why getting kids familiar with first responders is important in non-emergency situations. Fire lept high into the air as firefighters did mock battle with a propane tank fire, exhibiting how they angle their hoses and move in synchronization to safely put it out.
