The firemen talked about fire safety and why home smoke
detectors are important. They wanted the children to understand what to
do if a fire does happen at their home. Escape plans were defined and
firemen showed their suits and talked about how it keeps them safe
from fires but how hard it is to hear noises or voices. Children
should not hide but let the firemen know they are there if a fire is
keeping them from escaping.
The visit was concluded with children being given tours of the
fire truck and shown the many parts of the vehicle and what each does.
