The fire fighters then spent time interacting with the students.Â Rumor has it a Zone student beat the department ping pong champ!Â The students had a blast and are looking forward to the next visit.Â In the meantime, while students work on math skills, the fire department may want to brush up on their ping pong skills.Follow us on Twitter.
