Fire fighters will share basic fire safety information to children, show them the fire engine and equipment, and show children what a fire fighter looks like in bunker (fire fighting) gear. The presentation focuses on teaching children that fire fighters are their friends, not to play with matches and lighters, stop, drop, and roll, and how to exit their home safely in case of fire.
