Nebraska Firefighter's Museum Hosts Exclusive Training


A one of a kind, hands–on program helps teach kids about safety as they learn more about how local responders do their jobs.

From learning how to tow a vehicle to how weather affects our lives, these kids got the chance to learn about all types of emergency scenarios, during the Nebraska Firefighter's Museum's 2nd annual R–Hero training.

Museum staff say they're proud to be the only one in the country to do it.

"What R–Hero foundation is to show kids that not all superheroes wear capes and they're in our lives every day, said museum director Erika Smith. "And so what is good about it is showing the kids that people who really do save lives every day and how they do it and maybe teaching them maybe "I want to do that when I grow up."

Plans are already in place for next year's R–Hero camp.
