Today I accompanied Evan’s preschool class to the fire station. We were supposed to visit the police station too but that trip got cancelled at the last minute. Evan was very excited that I was going with him. We met 3 nice firefighters and learned lots about fire safety and firetrucks. Some of the safety tips they shared with the kids:
- If there is a fire go outside. Don’t stay inside (or go back inside) for stuffies, pets or to find mommy and daddy. Go outside and they will find you there.
- Though a fireman in full gear may look a little scary, never hide from them. They are there to help you get out of the house safely but they don’t have time to look for you.
- Plan a meeting place outside where your family will meet each other in case of a fire (like a neighbors house or a tree).
Thanks so much to Evan’s teacher and the firemen who took time out of their day to tour us around.
