A tour of the Fire Departmentย 

Simone’s Girl Scout troop went to visit the Ferguson Fire Department… And the boys were lucky enough to get to tag along! ๐Ÿš’


(It was actually quite hilarious to see the boys running around the parking lot “scared” of all the girls!)

I let them have their fun before I reined them in and reminded them no funny business in the Fire Station!

The first order of business on the tour was a first-aid class!

The boys sat way in the back… They were so happy not be sitting next to any girls!


The class was lead by some Fire-Fighters and some Paramedics… who were AMAZING!!

When they started talking about broken bones, Eddie mentioned he had broken his arm before (he fell out of a tree).

Eddie was then called to the front to demonstrate how a first-aid splint would be done to a patient, in the case of a broken bone.

ย We were told that most anything can work as a splint- as long as the bone is kept immobile… However a pillow works best!


Simone got called on to demonstrate a leg ย splint.

We also got a tour of the living spaces within the fire station.

The Fireman’s Pole was a favorite!


But nothing really compares to the trucks!

  2. How fun! We recently did a tour of our local fire department with our co-op group. It cracks me up how much of a hit those trucks are even with the older kids.
