So it was that time of year again, time for Lucas’s class to go to the fire station. This time we went on a day where they have a community expo! It was COLD and WINDY. (This was taken when I left Mirah’s school after dropping off cash boxes for the book fair)
By the time I met the class at the fire station it was sunny, but still very cold.
Lucas was excited.
Luke’s “buddies” for the event were Leo and Seth. They will be in all of our photos. It was crazy. From the CPR dummy, we went to the egg demo. Wear a seat belt and a helmet!
Then the kids got helmets and sun glasses.
Next we got cotton candy and pop corn.
Then they got to get on a real life fire truck!
Here are some of the kids in his class. Lucas was upset because he wanted more cotton candy.
I gave him mine, that stopped it. Punk.
Then we went to a demo of the fire men cutting up a car!
Lucas, Leo, Abram, and Seth.
It was so loud and windy and crowed, and cold, I was pretty ready to leave at every moment.
There was really loud sounds.
The jaws of life
Lucas got to meet a real fireman.
Then we learned about fire extinguishers, with our volunteer, Ms Vicki!
She got to wear real fire proof gear.
He lit it up.
She put it out with low sweeping motions.
The boys met a service dog.
We even saw a helicopter land!
We were so cold, and it was really cool, but we were ready to go!
