The Hoover Rec Center's summer day camp kids got some help from the fire department on Friday with an egg drop contest. The campers, ages 6 to 12, divided into teams to make their best contraptions to safely carry an egg to the ground. Some relied on bulk, with lots of cushioning to cradle their egg, while others created a container light enough to be held aloft by helium balloons. The Hoover Fire Department brought its reserve engine and several firefighters to the Rec Center parking lot, where they extended the engine ladder several dozen feet in the air to test the campers' egg drop prototypes.
