They took us all around the fire engine and explained to us what all the different things were…including the big ax that he refered to as the "keys to the city". It was all very interesting and probably the parents got more out of the detailed information than the kids did. In fact, during q&a time, they opened it up to the parents and many of the parents asked questions.

We've been to a fire station before, but this was by far the most detailed trip and I really enjoyed learning a few new things from it. I was also happy to see that neither of my kids were scared of the fireman all dressed up. It has been a while since we've seen a fireman like that, but the last time, Connor wouldn't go near him.
