Crete Park District celebrates annual Park-A-Palooza
Crete firefighter Billy Eberhart spent Park-A-Palooza showing kids the full firefighter gear and explaining the big mask they wear is not scary. He put the mask on and off, let the kids touch it and explained how the mask allows firefighters to breathe inside a fire. He also explained how the mask alters a firefighter's voice and let the kids hear how it will sound if they are stuck inside during a fire. Crete Park District personnel praised firefighter Eberhart for his excellent work and rapport with the children.
