Our last field trip was to the Fire Station.
This was a much anticipated field trip, especially for most of the boys.
First we saw their break room, office and kitchen. We learned why they have 3 fridges (there are 3 shifts, and no one likes to share their ice cream, so each shift has it's own fridge). While we were in the kitchen, the alarm went off and the dispatcher welcomed the busy bee preschool to the fire station.
Next, we went to where the fire fighters sleep. Then we went to where the kids wanted to go the entire time - fire trucks. We learned the difference between a fire truck, brush rig and fire engine.
Feeling the shiny metal on the fire engine.
Checking out all the cool axes and tools. Of course the kids picked up on the fact that they have to break down doors.
One of the fire fighters put on his garb for the kids to see.
Once he put on his mask, and started talking through it, they all got a bit nervous. I can see why little kids hide when they see fire fighters.
Love Evans face! This was after he put on his mask.
They got to touch all his equipment and uniform. They taught the kids that this is how they stay safe, and how the kids shouldn't be scared when they see a fire fighter dressed like that.
Practicing the Stop, Drop and Roll routine.
Trevor did NOT want to be in this picture. (If any other moms have pictures, feel free to upload them. I need to put my camera on sport mode when I'm shooting these guys. Someone is always moving.)
Of course Ava is out of focus, because she wouldn't hold still.
They got fire hats, safety books and stickers.
I think the kids had a great time at the fire station.
