While Fire Pup (Joshua Buhler) got lots of high fives and hugs, Lily Couch couldn't resist giving his nose a tweak during his visit with SEMO Christian Academy children Wednesday morning. Youngsters learned what to do in case their house caught fire, got to see an officer in his firefighting apparel and saw the equipment on board the fire truck. Members of the Sikeston Department of Public Safety's Fire Division are visiting local schools to discuss fire safety through Oct. 15. Also pictured are Avrie Cannon and FTO James Whitley.
