Fire Hall #1

I've always wanted to see inside a fire station, but got my first chance to do so this morning, accompanying Kasia's preschool class to Fire Hall #1. It was pretty interesting!

"Hey, get down from there!"
Well, not really. They gave each of the kids a chance to sit in the driver's seat. Kasia is obviously enjoying herself!

I found the whole expedition highly enjoyable, and watching the kids climbing over the equipment, kept thinking of the Robert Munch story where a couple of kids insert themselves into a fire station. Guess that would make a good choice for tonight's bed time reading.
