Pasadena Girl Scout Troop 4051 of the Mt. Wilson Vista Council visited City Hall today. I introduced them to some of Pasadena's finest, who talked to them about safety and what's involved in firefighting.
Here are firefighters Jerry Kenoly (left) and Amo Avakian holding the girls' attention.
Each of the girls got to try on the heavy protective clothing that firefighters wear.
Before we left the firefighters, each of the girls got a stick-on firefighter badge.
What a good-lookin' group!
Then we headed up the stairs for a quick tour of City Hall and a look at some of the architectural features of the building's exterior that symbolize strength, abundance and water.
I love my job. I work very hard in my office and in the community every day, and the tours with children make it all worth it.
