Firefighters and Paramedics Show ELL Students What Happens When You Call 911 [Biddeford Adult Education]

Thank you to the Biddeford Fire and Rescue Department for taking time out of their day to explain 911 to our foreign students.  Deputy Chief Kevin Duross explained how 911 works and what it is used for. He further explained what would happen when fire/rescue would show up at your house. This was extremely helpful for our foreign students to know what would happen in case of an emergency. Chaplain Kevin Jacques was also there to let people know that he might be show up when the department is called, to help with support for those not needing medical attention.  Steve Szostek, Firefighter/Paramedic and Derek Hayes, Firefighter/Paramedic were on hand with the ambulance to show the students different equipment they might have to use. They also showed the students the inside of the ambulance and equipment that they might use in there as well.
