After completing the challenge, you can meet the firefighters from the Niverville FD and learn about the different tools they use to fight fire, as they help you explore their rescue truck.There will also be free cake and beverages to celebrate the exhibit opening from out friends at Hannaford and Ginsberg's Foods.
