About the Event
The tour will be light hearted, and fun. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for children to meet a Firefighter for the first time on a car accident or a fire on family’s worst day of their lives, which can be traumatic for the family. The goal of this event is for the kids to meet Firefighters in a non-emergency event, and realise they are human and not to be scared. The fire fighters will focus on making the experience fun, engaging and overall a good learning experience. However, the kids are to stay together as a group and respect that they are in an active Fire Station. The 60 minutes seesion will cover the following things:
- What does the Fire Service do and what are responsibilities of being a Firefighter
- Discuss when to dial 911
- Smoke detectors/ Alarms
- The dangers of playing with fire/ lighters/ matches/ fireworks
- What to do in an emergency/ if you smell smoke/ two means of egress
- Show and tell on our PPE (personal protective equipment)
- Live drills of putting on our PPE and how our SCBA (self contain breathing apparatus) works
- Tour of the Station and the Fire Apparatus (Engine/ Tender/ Bush Truck/ Jet Boat)
- Meet ‘Sparky the Dog’
- Parking: There is a big parking lot located to the North of the Fire Station.
- Registration Deadline is October 14, 2023
- Recommended Ages: 5-12 years
