Raw, clop and woah is what you are supposed to do when your clothes catch on fire according to fire chief Hannah! They are learning about fire safety at her school and we walked down to the fire station today for a field trip.
And I said “Do you mean stop, drop and roll?”
“Yeah mama, that’s right! Raw, clop and woah!”
Then we walked down to the fire station.
When we got to the fire station where we learned lots of cool things. I didn’t know this, but our volunteer fire and ambulance service is the only no-charge fire and ambulance service in the state of Indiana. All of their services are completely free. I had no idea there was a fee if the fire dept. came to your house, but I thought it was kinda cool that ours is the only one in the state that doesn’t charge a fee for their services.
They got to talk to a real fireman.
Then he put on all his gear for them. They thought that was really cool!
Then they got to go inside the ambulance and the fire truck.
And I was amazed at how well a group of 3 year olds were paying attention. They were totally into this fire station stuff!
He even went down the pole for us!
The children were asked what to do if there was a fire in their house and one of the kids yelled “Call 9-1-1-1!”
He said it was okay to dial the extra one because the call would still go through. In fact he told them that they could dial as many 1’s as they wanted and it would be okay, but just for the record, it’s 9-1-1, children. 🙂
They really enjoyed the fire station. Next we headed over to the park for a snack and some play time.
And just to recap, we learned today that if your clothes catch on fire, it’s Raw, Clop and Woah!
And if your house catches on fire, call 9-1-1-1!
This has been an important public safety announcement from your friendly neighborhood fire girl.
Oh and by the time we got home, it was really hot. Remember those near record high temps I told you about? Well, don’t think that some hot weather in the fall is gonna keep my girl from wearing her new, brown suede boots!
Nope. Not a chance of that. She gets her foot fashion sense from her father, no doubt.
