- In elementary school, you may have wanted to be a police officer, firefighter, or doctor when you grew up.But you might not have gotten to see those jobs - and the gear that goes with them - up close.Grade schoolers from Rhinelander got to do just that on Thursday.Careers on Wheels showed off jobs that use transportation to get around.
Students got to talk to the professionals any try out some of the equipment themselves.Everyone learned something new on this field trip."I didn't know there was this tool that's called the 'jaws of life' to help people in an emergency if a car collapsed on them or a building or an accident," says fifth grader Kenedy Van Zile."The logging truck only gets 5.3 miles to the gallon," fifth grader Breckin Younker was surprised to find out.Nearly 20 groups, like paramedics, mail carriers, and medical clinics, showed off how they use transportation in their career.
