The Pierce City Fire Department visited Story Time and Lap Time on Oct. 8 for Fire Safety Week. The children enjoyed seeing the fire truck and hearing the siren. After the truck left, the children practiced "stop, drop and roll" and then made Dalmatian pudding, which was vanilla pudding with mini chocolate chips.
