Safety Town

Tonight we went to the Frisco Fire Department's Safety Town.  They have free open houses on Friday nights during the summer and I've been meaning to take the kids for a while, just never got around to it.  Nathan has been here twice on school field trips, but the rest of us have never been.

They started us out in a safety class to prepare the kids for driving the jeeps.

Joshua decided he was too scared to drive, so he rode in the same jeep with Nathan.

Safety Town has traffic lights, stop signs, stores, cross walks, etc.

Just like driving at Lego Land!

After the jeep ride, we went into some of the buildings to learn more about safety.  The volunteers taught the kids about bike safety, when to call 911, tornado safety, smoke safety, etc.

And of course the kids could play in a fire truck!

The kids were given a passport book when we entered and at each safety station they could get a stamp.  On the way out they could trade in their passport book for a small prize.

It was a fun night!  Did I mention it's free?  If you live in the area, it's definitely worth going to on a Friday night in the summer.  They also have a free trick-or-treat event on Friday, October 26.
