Fire Safety Night

While O Boy and Dad were in SC visiting the Hunley, our local volunteer fire dept. had a fire safety night.  We joined up with our good friends Doris and Ro and had a super fun night.

Ro all dressed up.

One of their favorite activities was the obstacle course they set up for kids to do.   During training they have to go through these same obstacles, fully geared up and blind folded.  They simply have to follow the hose "out" of the burning building.  I still don't know how you could make it through some of these obstacles with oxygen tanks, masks and all your gear!

Mr. T's turn to dress up.  He loves dressing up like a fireman.

Can't forget the tanks!

That's a lot to haul around!

Back to the obstacle course again...

After watching the boys do it time after time the Little Sweetie finally decided to give it a try.

Ro is being a good fireman and checking to make sure that none of his partners are getting left behind.

There is ALWAYS time during a fire to pose nicely for a picture.

Staying on the hose!

That window sill is pretty high!

But if the boys can do it, so can she!

Did it!

The search and rescue crew always has a tug of war station up where they let the kids tug on their ropes and pulleys they use for rescues.

I'm not sure Mr. T is really providing much help to his team here.

Up and down in the stretcher is always a fun activity too.

This was another activity that the Little Sweetie wasn't sure about, but once the boys had done it a few times she was ready to give it a try too.

What a fun night!  Thanks for going with us Doris and Ro!
