Girl Scout Trip to the Fire Station

With back to school time also comes back to Girl Scouts!

The first two badges that Addy & her troop earned this year (back in September) were the Brownie safety award & the first aide badge. Both these badges required a field trip to a fire station .

So that's where we went for our first field trip of the 2015-2016 school year.

After all the girls arrived, the firefighters took us on a tour of the station. They we went outside to the garage (Is it called a garage in a firehouse? Or a bay? Or a hanger? Anyone know the technical name for it?) to see the firetruck & the ambulance.

And all the cool tools that they keep on a firetruck.

Then one of the firefighters showed the girls how fast they put on their gear.

And then he explained that even though he may look scary with the mask, he is still the same person that he was before.
And gave them all high fives.

After that, the girls went outside & they all got a turn to spray the firetruck's hose.

Addy thought that was pretty cool!

And of course, before we left, we had to get a troop picture with our awesome Sienna firefighters!
