Our visit to the fire station

We had a fabulous trip to the West Brattleboro Fire Station today!  The firefighter greeted us at the door and showed us all of the supplies on the truck.  He also talked to us about fire safety.  He told the kids that if they were ever trapped in their bedrooms during a fire, they should open their window and throw stuffed animals down and yell.  I thought that was a great tip!  He put on his gear to show the kids what he looked like with his gear on so that if they ever saw a firefighter during a fire they would not be scared.  The highlight of the trip was the opportunity to sit in a fire truck.  We had a great time!
