Firefighter Visit This Thursday, 11/5/2015!
We are excited to once again have the Durham Fire Department come to the CSDC this Thursday, 11/5/2015!
The visit from the Durham Fire Department is always a big hit among the children at the CSDC. The firefighters are great at teaching the children not to be afraid of firemen and women. Oftentimes, the children will panic and hide, so the goal is to show them that firemen are real people who want to help them!
They'll bring their big red fire truck and a few planned activities to entertain and educate our youngsters about the importance of fire safety. The children will get an up-close-and-personal look at the fire truck, as well as a demonstration of a firefighter suiting up, just like they do at the station during an emergency call.
The fire department introduces these aspects to very young children as well as all grade levels, so that over the years they see it several times. Learning about firefighters is not only entertaining for the children, but will help them in case a real emergency were to occur at their homes.
