On Monday we were lucky to be visited by the Kirkwood Fire Department, as they taught us how to be safe around fire, and what to do to prevent problems if we encounter one in our house.
First, we watched a video with some friends we know and love:
…and then our beloved firefighters taught us about what to do when we hear the smoke detector. They even reminded us what it sounds like!
We talked about Stop, Drop, Cover your Face and Roll as well as how to find a safe spot where our family will meet if we have to leave our house (ours is down the street by the speed limit sign!), as well as how every bedroom should have two exits in case one is blocked. Perhaps the best part was when he put on his gear so we could see what a fireman would look like if we ever encountered one in a rescue! He sounded like Darth Vader with his mask on!
We knew a lot, learned a lot and feel super safe about fire safety! Thank you firefighters!! We appreciate you!! Happy Fire Prevention Week!
