We left early in the morn to arrive at the PortCrane Fire Station with 150 other homeschooling families from the area. We were introduced to the Chief who told us all sorts of facts about fire safety as well as what the colors of each helmet meant and what each persons job was as part of the fire department. Then we broke off into age groups and had lots of fun learning more facts.
T. did a treaure fire safety hunt which invovled him going into a variety of rooms and finding the different fire safety hazzards and components of safe equipment. He had fun. B. went off to learn about all the various fire satey equipment from history to current standard of fire gear.

I don’t have a working camera right now, but my friend over at Mind Games took a shot of the group and one of T. in the truck. Here they are:
