Our local volunteer fire department runs a fantastic fire safety event every fall. The kids can earn a ride on a fire truck by completing 5 safety stations: they must make a mock 911 call and give the appropriate information, climb out of a window, climb down a fire ladder, draw up an escape plan and discuss it, and stop, drop and roll while covering their faces. At each station, their ticket gets punched. Five punches and they are good to go. Mikro did the stations twice and got two fire truck rides. And the second time, he got to ride shotgun!
