Spencer Fire Department Chief John Conyn reads a book on firefighters to young children while wearing bunker gear at the library on Tuesday. The Fire Department has been touring schools and visiting youth in the community to raise awareness and provide education about fire safety this week for Fire Prevention Month. “It’s all about the youth. ... We just like talking to the kids, there’s a lot of smiles and scared faces, and we’ll see the kids from preschool age where you have to adjust your approach to them, all the way up to sixth grade. We try to teach them to their capability of learning,” firefighter Todd Huckfelt, said. (Photo by Joseph Hopper)
