Fire House

13 October 2010

I am a member of a Holistic Moms Group and one of my favorite aspects of the group is all of the outings that are planned for members.  One of our members arranged to have a visit to the Westfield Fire House.  I was really impressed with how patient and kind the fire men were with the kids.  Although a visit to the fire house was the main appeal, the fire men taught the kids (and moms) some basic fire safety  tips.  You know 'stop, drop, and roll', changing the batteries in smoke detectors, not going back in the house for pets, etc.  It was a little bit over Quinn's head but the older kids were asking lots of questions .

At the end of our visit, the friendly fire men posed for a photo.

Inside the fire house.
The firemen let the kids touch and pick up lots of stuff.

 Curious Quinn :)
 He wanted to touch all of the buttons.
The kids got the chance to walk through the front of the fire truck.  Quinn's not so sure about getting a help out.

To make our day even better, the fire station is right next to the train station.  We walked up and down the platform a couple of times waiting in vain for a train to come whistling by the station.  Notice the birthday crown.
