Fire Safety

Sofia's preschool took a field trip to the Eastpointe Fire Station. We learned a lot about fire safety and the life of a fire fighter. Fire fighter Jackie taught the kids not to be scared of her in all her fire gear and they got to climb through the fire engine. They also got to spray the fire hose and each received their own helmet and badge. When it was question time, Grayson asked Jackie if she'd slide down the pole. She thought about it for a minute and decided to do it for him. He was pleased as punch (but it was so fast, the picture didn't turn out well).
