As with every department in area Ritchie is busy doing fire prevention presentations this month. On Thursday however members from Ritchie made the special trip to Wheatly Specialty Center. For several years now in the month of October Ritchie has gone to Wheatly to do this demonstration for these very special kids. Many of the kids are either physically or mentally challenged and normal dont get this type of opportunity to participate in these activities. Captain Chris Wilson along with Firefighters Tony Curtis and Dennis Wolfe showed the kids the apparatus and the tools that we use while President Rich Cunningham Jr. and Firefighter Mike Buck showed the kids inside the Friendly Firefighter and talked to them about what to do incase of an emergency. Also in attendance were representatives from MEIMMS and the Bowie VFD with their special events ambulance.
