Fire SafetyThursday, October 12, 2006 By Hunter Price Edited by Tuesday Weeks
Friday, October the 6th between ten o’clock in the morning and two o’clock in the afternoon, Frank Foote brought the fire truck down to the preschool, so that the kids could check it out and maybe even get to feel like a real fire fighter. Mrs. Smoke, a teacher at the Pre School was telling me how every week the kids have a different letter and this week letter was F, for fire safety. The kids were learning how to stop, drop, and roll and that they should always stay low to the ground when fire smoke is in the air, because smoke rises.” Some of the kids were asked of their points of view on the fire truck, and their favorite thing about it. They said that they liked the ladders on the truck and that they got to honk the horn. It sounded like the most favorite thing was that they got to climb on the truck, and to see how big the water hose was, they also liked that the truck wasn’t red and that it was yellow. “I haven’t ever seen a yellow fire truck”, said a few of the kids. They said, “the sirens were the loudest thing that they have heard in a long time.” The kids are excited to see what their letter is going to be next week, because they said “So far the letter F has been the best letter all year. Frank Foote also showed the kids the main parts of the truck that makes it put out water, and the easiest ways to get the ladders down from the truck.
