Fire Station Field Trip

The fire station field trip was amazing!
First, the kids got to go through a trailer and learn about fire safety. A firefighter talked about safety in the kitchen with the stove, poisons and the microwave. It was wonderful. The kids were captured.
Next they got to call 911 and a firefighter was on the other end.
Then they filled the room with fake smoke and taught them what to do. They then crawled through a window into the waiting arms of another firefighter.
The kids then moved on to watch 2 movies about fire safety.
They learned about the fire house and their uniforms.
Then came the fire truck. They got to climb in and try out different things on the truck.
Thank you so much to the wonderful firefighters who volunteered to teach out homeschooling group!
