Firefighter Visitors

Call your local fire station and speak to the fire chief to arrange a day and time when firefighters can visit your group. Explain that you'd like the firefighters to talk about their jobs and bring equipment for children to investigate. (Request that they not wear masks or other gear that may frighten children.) Look for pictures and books about firefighters to keep in your room. Ask if your fire station can provide information about home fire safety that you can distribute to families. Be sure to notify families about the visit, and encourage them to attend.
