Fire clowns bring laughs, lessons on safety to Parker County schoolchildren

(Continued)

Weatherford firefighters have been working and practicing for months to pull off the 20-minute long skit, according to Fire Marshal Bob Hopkins.

They also chose to tackle a non-fire-related theme this year with the topic of bullying, Hopkins said.

The children’s laughter as one clown mocked another quickly grew quiet Wednesday afternoon as another clown stepped in to stop the bullying.  

The dancing and high-fiving that started the skit continued as the young children filed out of the lunch room Wednesday.
