The other day, David and Arlene Squires brought their 3 1/2-year-old grandson Grayson to the Greens Farms fire station.
Like many youngsters, he loves firefighters and trucks. His grandparents live right across Muddy Brook from the station, so when he is in Westport Grayson hears the sirens and sees the flashing lights.
Though the visit was unannounced, the crew went all out for their guests. They were thrilled to see Grayson dressed in uniform.
David reports that the trucks are shiny, the helmets are heavy — and there were no Dalmatians.
Grayson was shy when he met his heroes. And that’s what they are — whether in action, or making a young boy’s day in between calls.
