At home, the kiddo loves pretending to be on a firefighting mission and acts out everything. Parksville firefighters did not take long to notice Micah was ready with his gear to go out on a mission.

After the fire was put out, Micah accompanied them to the station. He finally saw with his own eyes how the station works. He learned a lot about firefighting.
