A group of Immanuel Lutheran School students were standing in a small kitchen this week when suddenly flames began to shoot up from a garbage can in the corner. As smoke poured from the trash can, Wisconsin Rapids Firefighter Mike Lisitza calmly asked the students, who were from Susan Cour's third-grade class, what they should do when a fire breaks out. "Get out!" shouted one excited third-grader. With a little prompting from Lisitza, another student shouted "call 911" and Lisitza handed him a phone he took off the kitchen counter. The boy suddenly became less sure about things, but, with some prompting from Lisitza, the boy was able to tell an unseen "dispatcher" on the other end that there was a fire. Immanuel Lutheran School was just one stop this week for Wood County's new fire trailer.
