Safety Day 2012

The Safety Day at the school was last Monday, so I went to be with Blake's class.  Morgan's class also went to it, but later in the afternoon.  Since I already had 4 trips to make to town that day, I didn't go to be with her class too...she understood, especially since one extra trip was for her Spring Sing :-)

Blake sitting in the police car and feeling pretty special!

In the ambulance learning about some things that might happen if they were to ever have to ride in one.  (They want to make sure the kids won't be scared.)

Rich took the day off to be at the school and help.  He showed them some equiptment in the fire engine and what they're used for.

All the kids had the chance to spray the fire hose, which as you can see was a huge hit with Blake :-)

The kids with their goodie bags and their fire helmets lining up to go back to class.  Blake is peaking back at me :-)

The kids also had the chance to go through the smoke trailer, where they practiced getting down and crawling to stay under the smoke.  Since the teacher was inside to be with the kids, I stayed outside to help the kids down from the trailer...I didn't end up with any pictures. :-/

This is something Rich and the other firefighters really enjoy doing with the kids!  I think they were just as excited as the kids and were making plans to do some extras for next year. :-)

I think it is very important to show them safety measures. Looks like Blake enjoyed his day.

I love that they do this... It is SO good for the kids to learn all of this stuff!
With daddy as a fireman, why doesn't Blake get to spray that hose more often? ;)
