The New Albany Fire Department (NAFD) treated children to a spray, foam and bubbles party yesterday at the Union County Library in New Albany. Using an NAFD ladder truck, firemen hooked a spray hose high on the ladder and sent a wide spray of water onto the children below. The library provided a special foam machine for the event.

Firemen used a foam machine which created a small mountain of cooling suds that chilled the kids down in the 90-degree July heat

Children were allowed to inspect the fire fighting equipment and ask questions as they talked with fire fighters.

New Albany Fire Chief Mark Whiteside said, “There are many reasons we involve our fire fighters out in the community as much as possible. We mainly do it to be in contact with as many citizens as possible, both young and old, to promote fire safety and the fire department.”

Recently, the New Albany Board of Aldermen voted to build a new “spray park” for children in the Park-Along-the-River. The facility is expected to be ready next year at a cost of about $200,000.
