Most children, when they think of fire departments, get excited about fire trucks -- ladder trucks, engines, rescue vehicles and pumpers -- and, perhaps, dream of being firefighters one day. Most children also love bounce houses, but probably don’t think of them when they think of fire departments. That may change in March when Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) personnel travel to Brunswick, Ohio, to retrieve a $13,000, 72-foot-long, four-piece inflatable obstacle course from Inflatable Images.
