This weekend I was entertaining myself by visiting firefighters festival in Laval, on Montreal’s north shore.
I have never wanted to be a firefighter when I was a kid (I wanted to be a president). But I really respect firefighters’ job and there is something they have that I am crazy about. Fire trucks! I am truck fan since I was a kid I must confess. All those dirty and smelly, huge and powerful trucks, long roads… Anyway, I decided that I must some and see firefighters’ trucks – they are big, red, shiny and have loud sirens! This year’s festival included fire trucks parade! Ain’t it the best way to satisfy my inner child? Here is what I have seen.
Then, after parade it was time to take a close look at trucks
Those who are not interested in trucks could find something interesting too.
Here firefighters not only fight fire, but they are first to come on rescue in life threatening situations. They showed visitors how they do it! Very interesting!
I think it is a nice festival. It is a tribute to hard and dangerous work of firefighters, it informs people what firefighters do and how they are able to help. Me, I was happy like a kid to see great old trucks. Other kids were very excited about firefighters, in 10-15 years they will ask themselves a question what do they want to do in life. I am sure many of them will remember this nice event 😉
