HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A Henrico teacher got the chance to see what it is like to be a firefighter on Saturday.
Casey Vanderpool spent the day learning the ropes at Henrico Training Center.
She worked with running fire hoses, learned about thermal imaging cameras and worked from a ladder truck -- even cutting a victim from a car.
Her day continued with a lunch, before heading to Osbourne Boat Landing to learn how the marine operations work.
Ms. Vanderpool won the “Firefighter for a Day” experience in a free raffle organized by the Henrico Firefighter Foundation.
