Talk about showing up for school in style.
Lakewood Fire Department’s junior fire chief Sydney Wilhelmy arrived at Horace Mann Elementary School in Fire Engine No. 2.
He was greeted by a crowd of his classmates.
Wilhelmy was named the department’s junior fire chief for his essay about the importance of knowing an alternative exit in the event of a fire.
Firefighters have spent the week visiting schools in Lakewood to teach students about fire safety and show off some fire equipment.
