So, Moorhead Fire is teaching anyone who wants to learn more about what they do.

Sunday afternoon, fire fighters showed kids and their parents how to use the heavy hose, how to knock down fires and how much work it takes.

The crew also demonstrated how the jaws of life work.

A few men used an old car as an example by smashing out the window and dismantling the vehicle.

Assistant Chief Chad Stangelane – Moorhead Fire Department: "Fire fighters are friendly we want them to know, in case of a stressful situation of having a fire, not to be scared, and they can go to us for help."

Fire crews spent the afternoon demonstrating just how dangerous kitchen fires can be.
