Jeff Johnson, left, Fire Chief Jacob Howard and Becky Walters of the Bethlehem Volunteer Fire Department speak to students at Bethlehem Elementary School Wednesday as part of National Fire Prevention Week. The visit helps familiarize students with what firefighters look like in full gear so they won’t be afraid if they ever encounter firefighters in an emergency situation. The department also displayed two of its trucks and some of its equipment to the students.
