Medicine Hat has a new Fire Chief, at least for today.

St Louis School grade 6 student Sophie Kerr was picked up this morning by the crew at fire station 2 and learned about all the equipment and more.

Kerr said she was having a lot of fun learning and doing firefighter things.

Kerr says, “I got to slide down the pole, which was awesome.  There was a maze thing, more like an apparatus, and that was really fun.  Then we were in a scenario thing  and there was this Rescue Randy guy, and he was on the couch.”

The grade 6 student says firefighters are pretty cool, but she still wants to be an anesthesiologist when she grows up.
