OUR Kindergarten recently visited Greytown’s Fire and Rescue Station to learn about people who help in the community.
The Little Oaks loved sitting in the truck, putting on the jackets and helmets and touching all the hoses, taking away a lot of really interesting information that was shared with them.
To see a real-life fireman in a fire suit helped our Little Oaks to understand who firemen (or women) are and what it is they do for us. With the suit, helmet, mask, tools, and gloves they can be scary and intimidating for young children, so the more exposure they have to them and what they look like, the less likelihood of them being fearful if they ever have to meet one during a rescue.
We also practised the “stop, drop and roll” procedure, which most pupils under the age of five have never practised. This procedure could save one’s life if one is ever caught on fire.
A big thank you to all the firefighters, who were very helpful and taught us about how to help young children prepare and practice for a house fire.
