Smokey Bear visited Great Plains Head Start today with RFD

(Arapahoe, Wyo.) – Smokey Bear and the Riverton Fire District gave a safety demonstration and lesson to the 125 youngsters at the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho Head Start Birth-Five Program at Great Plains this morning. While the younger kids looked in awe at the huge fire truck parked in front of their school, it was the four and five year olds who knew about smoke detectors and to not hide under their beds if they smelled smoke.
