Fireman & Fire Safety

Fireman & Fire Safety

TALK:


Show fire truck, fire hat and talk about what color they are?
What are they? What do firemen do?- keep us safe from a fire. Set up with your local fire department to either host a field trip to the firehouse or have a fireman with their truck visit you at your location to talk with the kids about their gear, fire safety (smoke alarm demo) and how to keep safe during a fire! Remember to teach them about getting to safe place as quickly as they can. Also teach them to not be afraid of the fireman- their job is to keep them safe!

SING:



I Am A Fireman
Sung to: "I'm A Little Teapot"

I am a fireman dressed in red.
With my fire hat on my head.
I can drive the fire truck, fight fire too,
And help make things safe for you.

Hurry, hurry Drive the Firetruck
Sung “Ten Little Indians”
Hurry, hurry
Drive the fire truck,
(make driving motions)
Hurry, hurry
Drive the fire truck,
Hurry, hurry
Drive the fire truck,
Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!
(swing hand as if ringing the bell)
Hurry, hurry
Climb the ladder,
(pretend to climb a ladder)
Hurry, hurry
Climb the ladder,
Hurry, hurry!
Climb the ladder,
Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding! 
Hurry, hurry,
Squirt the water,
(Make squirting motions with two hands together like a hose)
Hurry, hurry,
Squirt the water,
Hurry, hurry,
Squirt the water,
Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!
