SPOKANE, Wash. — The Spokane Fire Department and other local organizations hosted the first ever Kids Junior Fire Academy on Saturday at River Park Square.

The family event allowed kids to check out a fire department ladder truck, fire engine, learn hands-only CPR, make a craft with Mobius Children’s Museum and handle a charged fire hose.

Kids also collected stamps on their “passport Stamp Card” at each activity and could receive a Jr. Firefighter certificate.

The event was hosted by Spokane Fire Department, Safe Kids, Mobius Children’s Museum, the Downtown Spokane Partnership and River Park Square.
