As part of National Fire Prevention month (October) area 3rd Grade
students in the Pueblo competed in an essay contest about why they
wanted to be Fire Chief for A Day. Two students were selected from
city schools, 1 from Pueblo West, and 1 from the St. Charles Mesa.
An assembly was held at North Mesa Elementary where the
students were entertained by Ronald McDonald. After the assembly the
Fire Chiefs for A Day were treated to a ride in a fire truck and lunch
at McDonalds on Highway 50 West.
