Happy Fire Prevention Week!

We got to put out pretend fires with real fire hoses!

The hoses were attached to this truck which was attached to a pumper truck.

Extra tools and gear for firefighters

The "Jaws of Life." This tool can help lots of people who are trapped.

This fire truck has big ladders!

Here are extra oxygen tanks for the firefighters.


  1. It looks like you had a fantastic day with the firefighters.
    Were the hoses heavy to hold? I bet it was fun shooting water at the targets.
    What did you learn about fire prevention?

  2. The firefighters held the hoses for us. They were kind of heavy. They sprayed very fast. If you're on fire, stop, drop, and roll around. The tanker truck holds lots of water. Firefighters have pokers to break through walls. DON'T HIDE FROM FIREFIGHTERS!
