Stop, Drop and Roll! It's Fire Safety Month!

To kick off fire safety month our friend Firefighter Josh visited us again and taught us yet another very important lesson! Stop, Drop and Roll!

First he read a book called Stop Drop and Roll by Margery Cuyler and then he gave us a demonstration before teaching our Junior Firefighters how to correctly stop, drop and roll. Finally be showed us his fire safety equipment, answered questions from the kids (and parents!) and gave everyone their own Junior Firefighter badge. Thank you again Firefighter Josh!

A Visit from Firefighter Josh!

Firefighter Josh Fire Escape Plan

This week we were fortunate to have a visit from our friend Firefighter Josh! He came to talk about fire safety, fire escape plans and to show us the special equipment he uses during fires and emergencies! He also read us a story called No Dragons for Tea by Jean Pendziwol. If you missed Firefighter Josh here at the library he welcomes visits at the  Winchester Fire Department, stop by and visit him soon! Also, come visit us in the Children's Room for more books and information on fire safety, firefighters and fire engines!
