Kids visit at a fire station: Based on the theme community helpers kids were taken to a fire station on January 22nd 2015. The fire department is such an important part of the community, they are usually happy to speak about fire safety and even give the little ones a glimpse of fire station. The size of the fire hoses and the length of the extended ladders surprised the kids when they viewed up close. The screech of the siren that is sounded just for their benefit is sure to bring giggles of glee that tend to be contagious. A successful day trip to the local fire department is a fun learning activity as the child can’t help coming away without a better understanding of fire safety. Getting the chance to talk to the newly hired firefighters, and asking questions about his job and role in the community. After the visit children were busy creating their own fire station, by beautiful drawings.
