Visit to a Fire Station

Last month we found a lovely book at the library entitled "Piro and the Fire Brigade" by Kurt Baumann. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the book cover, but here's a blur picture found off the net (in a different language too!) haha..

Well, Jo enjoyed the story and the illustration so much that we read it several times together. And what a better way to follow up on fire engines then an actual visit to a fire station.

So we joined several families on a visit to a firestation today, kindly organized/initiated by a father from the group. This is Nel's second experience, but Jo's very first. Needless to say they were excited and enjoyed the trip!

Well..see who wants to be a firegirl!

A try at fire fighting..well...no real fire, but the firemen sure enjoyed this whole thing! They  (the firemen) were really sporting. hahaha
A look inside..

Wow! How exciting! Did y'all have to go through a lot of red tape to request for a visit? My boy would love this!

i think if you have a group tat's large enugh, you can ask the nearest bomba to your place to organize something. This is our second time. Last was with a neighbourhood group..and our neighbourhood Bomba put up good water fights and drills just for us to watch. Fun. :) You could initiate a group visit near your area.

martha said...

no..nooneed to pay bomba. if you have a firestation in your neighbourhood, you could organize one too. :) It's a matter of parents taking initiative of creating activities in order to learn with your children. :)
