Fire Safety 2011

We went to the fire safety day for foster families this year. Instead of the smoke house that the kids normally get to crawl through, they got to actually use the fire hose. They sprayed water onto wooden flame cut outs. Shane was so excited he couldn't even come up with the words to describe it. It just came out like "Oooh! And them and I and Mommy! Pwshhh! Yah."

The adults got to use a fire extinguisher to put out a gas fire on a portable stove. It looked fun, but it was hard to breath with all the white dusty chemicals in the air. I thought I did good when it was my turn, but the fire man said I should have aimed more at the base of the flame. Oh well. Hopefully I'll never need to test that skill in real life.
