Some lucky students from Huth Road Elementary School received a ride to school Tuesday courtesy of the Grand Island Fire Co.
The students were winners of the GIFC's popular "Ride to School in a Fire Truck" drawing, which took place Thursday, Oct. 9, during the Fire Prevention Open House at fire headquarters.
Eight students won the trip on the ladder truck: Thomas Banas, Douglas Crowley, Gabrielle Estrella, Karina Grinchishin, Aleksander Pyc, Anna Pullano, Evan Steck and Riley Weber. The students are pictured at left upon their arrival at school with GIFC firefighters and Huth Road Elementary School Principal Kerri Nowak.
Huth Road School held Bus Safety Day recently at the school to educate the students about various elements of transportation. Students are pictured below receiving training from members of the safety team of the Grand Island Central School District's Transportation Department on how to exit the bus in the event of an accident.
