Community Helpers

People often need help. That is why each community has helpers. They do many important jobs in their communities.

Firefighters work hard to put out fires. They use ladders and hoses. They also drive big fire trucks. Firefighter uniforms are very heavy. They protect firefighters from fire.

Thanks to street cleaners, the community stays very clean. Street cleaners pick up trash and dead leaves on the street. They keep working in rain, snow, and wind.

Social workers help many different people. For example, elderly people sometimes live alone. That can be dangerous, so social workers visit them. They also help people find jobs.

Can you imagine your community without any helpers? It would be really different!
