Scouts explore fire station
WATERMAN – When scout leader Randy Leifheit asked if he could bring his Tiger Cub Scouts to visit the Waterman Fire Department, Fire Chief David Lave, who is scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 139, quickly agreed. Tiger Cubs Will Leifheit, Dylan White, Alex Whitely and Cole Jernigan were given a tour of the fire station on Jan. 10. Most of Troop 139’s leaders are also firefighters.
Lave said he could remember when his scouts were Tiger Cubs, and the visit “would be a blast from the past.”
The boys thought the radio room was cool, the meeting room was OK, and the highlight of the kitchen was that one Tiger Cub found a penny. Then Troop 139 Eagle Scouts Nick Cipra and Mitchell Lave – who is also a firefighter – took the Cubs to see the big red trucks. The Cubs tried on turnout gear, turned on the trucks’ emergency lights, explored the ambulance and talked on headsets.
