Children at the Early Childhood Center Visit the Maplewood Fire Department

The  first graders at the ECC are learning about fire safety this year.  We have partnered with the Maplewood Fire Department for this special opportunity.  Each month, two firefighters come to the ECC to talk with the first grade classes.  They show videos and have question and answer sessions that last about thirty minutes.  The children will also have to chance to explore a fire truck in the coming months.  Last month, we visited the fire station across the street.  Every child got to see where the firefighters spend their time, eat, and sleep.  Then they all got a turn spraying the hose on the pump truck.  It was a fun visit and enjoyed by everyone!
