fire-station field trip!

My buddy Laura organized a field trip for a bunch of home schoolers to visit the Santa Cruz fire station! We got a personal tour of the huge red engine, the fire-house and lots of personal time with Fireman Dan, Fireman Mike and their trusty Chief. It was incredible to hear about their lives as firemen! They really sacrifice to serve the community.

I think I asked the more questions than any of the kids though. :)

During their presentation, there was an emergency call that the firemen had to run out for! It was exciting to see them rush around and hear the loud siren on the engine. Thankfully, it wasn't a serious call - and they came back pretty quickly to give us an even longer tour of their living quarters. The kids had a great time too!

We love you Station #1 Firefighters!
