On Thursday, April 12, the Drumheller Brownies put on their hats and mittens and went on a field trip to the Drumheller Fire Hall.

"We try to get the out quite frequently," explained Noella Brisebois, one of the Brownies leaders. "We feel it's very important to get them out in the community and let the community know we're still around."

Although the group often takes field trips, this was the first time in a while that they visited the fire hall. Once there, the group was greeted by two women firefighters and were set loose to explore.

"The girls had so much fun exploring all the equipment," said Brisebois. "The volunteer firefighters that were there, and the captain, they did such an awesome job. They let them do the sirens, they got to sit in the boat, they got to look at the dummies they use."

An hour later and it was time to go. The girls picked up their coats, thanked the firefighters and headed back to their headquarters at the Knox Church on 3rd Ave. E.

"It was such a good feeling to know that these girls were able to go out there and explore things and ask the questions they wanted to ask the firefighters. It was a great feeling to know that we're doing this and getting the girls into the community."

Brisebois hinted that the Brownies were headed on another field trip this upcoming week, but wouldn't reveal where they were going. That trip, along with their excursion to the fire hall, are components to the coveted "Key to My Community."
