Ever since my son was very young he has dreamed about being in the fire department. I think he was around 3 years old the first time he started talking about it. He would read every book on the subject of fire fighting. I believe he has read everything in our library on the subject. He even did his science project this year on the nature of fire. In October he was FINALLY able to join our local fire department's Explorers. He had counted down the days. He would ride up to the fire department and chat with the members.
Here are a few of our trucks. This is Andrew's favorite truck. Pretty impressive I must say.
This is the rescue truck. This the one they take to all car accidents.
I cannot leave out another really important part of our community. Our ambulance service.
Last night we were invited to the fire department to see what the explorers have learned so far. We got a nice tour of the fire hall.
Bunkers on almost.
Andrew showing us his hydrant skills. I have to say I am one proud Mommy! He really does know his stuff!!
Hooking up the 5 inch hose to the hydrant. Those are not light.
