Where preschoolers and firefighters meet

Superior Sun

JFK preschool teacher, Kathy Zavala took the preschoolers on a field trip to the Superior Fire Department. They walked from the school to the fire department where we were greeted outside with firefighter hats, pink for the girls and red for the boys. The firemen started by giving the preschoolers a tour of the inside of the station including the work-out room, the classroom, and the rooms where the firefighters sleep.

Next they moved into the bay where the children learned about what they should do if there is a fire in their house. Mel Martinez and Jason Barragan, two volunteer firefighters, put on their gear so the kids would know what to expect if they had to be rescued from their home. They went out to the fire trucks next where the kids were able to get in and pretend to drive. After taking some pictures outside the class went back to the classroom at the fire station where the children learned about calling 911. 

Finally, the kids were served pizza, drinks, cookies, and brownies compliments of the staff at the fire station and their wives. Kathy Zavala said, “It was both fun and informative and we are thankful to everyone at the Superior Fire Department for inviting us. All of them were so great with the kids, it was a special day!” One of the volunteer firemen, Mel Martinez said, “I am looking forward to this event because my daughter is a preschooler.” The members of the Superior Fire Department care very deeply for the community.

Part of the mission statement from the Superior Fire Department is to increase the quality of life within the community and to protect lives. This experience with the preschoolers has hopefully helped them understand the need for the fire department and what they do. We can never have too much education of any form. Thank you to everyone who participated to make this another successful event.
