This morning we joined Jack and his nursery school class on their trip to the fire department in Port Williams. It was sort of a chilly morning but thankfully the rain held off and the kids were very excited to get to walk up the road to the fire station.
The firefighters at the station were so sweet to answer all the kids questions and show them what it looks like when a firefighter is all dressed up wearing the oxygen mask. The message was loud and clear "Do not be afraid of a firefighter when they come to rescue you even though they look and sound a little funny."
Since it is fire safety month they discussed all the important parts of fire safety with their preschoolers. Jack now knows all about stop drop and roll, fire detectors and to get download under the smoke to get out of the fire. I am so glad they talk about these things with the kids because it has completely slipped my mind still believing that he is a little baby.
Oh yes and they made an adorable Kleenex box fire truck with toy fireman :) Perfect time of year to get Kleenex box donations from parents of sniffly kids. We gathered 5 boxes to donate in one week!
