HUBBARD, Ohio (WYTV) — Several students at Hubbard Elementary School arrived to school in style on Wednesday.
They didn’t ride the bus or were brought in by their parents, instead, they rode to school on a fire truck.
The kids recently won a coloring contest set up by the Eagle Joint Fire Department.
The firefighters visited the school last month to tell each class about fire safety.
“As an adult, if you’ve never had the opportunity to ride on a fire truck, I think that’s something every kid wants to do. Even as an adult, you would still enjoy doing that so, for five lucky kids to have that experience already… they are very fortunate,” said Hubbard Elementary School Principal Shawn Marcello.
The fire truck the students got to ride in is the department’s brand new half-million dollar truck they just received through a grant last month.
