Council Bluffs children cool off at fire hydrant parties
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa —
Children in Council Bluffs found one way to beat the heat today with a one of a kind party.
These fire hydrant parties are hosted by the Council Bluffs Fire Department.
Children got to play in the water from the fire hydrant.
They also got free popsicles and had a tour of the fire truck.
Rick Bradshaw of the Council Bluffs Fire Department says it's about starting a good relationship with the community.
"It's a time to interact with the fire department on a less stressful situation," he said. "We usually bring a firetruck so the kids can look through the fire truck and everything."
There will be more of these hydrant parties this summer.
