This past Friday, JLE was invaded by every fire truck and fire fighter in Hudson at the annual JLE Fire Prevention Day! Our local Fire Fighters came to meet with the JLE children to review fire safety rules like “stop, drop and roll” and when in trouble “get out and then dial 911”. Then children were then treated to climb into real fire trucks! The JLE Family wishes to thank the Hudson City Fire Fighters for their service and yearly visit with us!
