Junior Firefighter

Our county offers a day class called "I want to be a fire fighter," although, Jake wants to be a baseball player when he grows up I still thought he would enjoy the class.

We went to a local park that is near a fire station. The class started with a short lesson in 9-1-1 & stop, drop, & roll. Then a book about fire men was read and the kids all got to make their own Junior Fire fighter badge.

The class then took a short trip over to the fire station & were given a tour. It was a little confusing for Jake that the firemen slept there and needed beds, but he liked seeing they had a kitchen and an exercise room.

Then of course they all were able to see a fire truck. Surprising Jake got really shy during the class and didn't want to do much but stay right with me. He did get his picture in front of the truck, but had no interest in getting in or taking his picture with the firemen. Afterward he talked all about the class, even though he was so shy once we got to the fire station.
