Published 4:02 pm Wednesday, October 9, 2013


Students at Rachel Patterson Elementary School enjoyed a visit from Atmore Fire Department firefighters Wednesday morning, as they learned about fire safety. The students got a chance to meet Smokey the Bear, Sparky the Dalmatian and a fully-dressed firefighter, and also were able to see the APD fire engine. Above, second graders react with excitement as they get to see AFD firefighter Ethan Smith in full suit. Watching from behind are AFD firefighters Capt. Chris Hughes and Capt. Ron Peebles.
