October is Fire Safety Month and we were so excited Firefighter Drexler was making a visit to share some safety tips and answer any questions the firsties might have. We had no idea Port Orange Fire Station 71 was bringing the fire truck! We enjoyed our time with these dedicated firemen. We were able to see a full uniform, hear their voice with an air pack on, touch their glove, learn about tools on a fire truck, and even got to walk through the fire truck cab! The children learned about fire safety and the importance of having a family meeting space in case of an emergency. I had the students write thank you cards and then record themselves reading the cards. I tried to get them all together to make 1 class video. We even had some friends make a ChatterPix Kid video with their pictures. Too cute. Enjoy and thank a fireman for all the hard work they do every day.
