Best Spur Of The Moment Field Trip

Your Neighborhood Fire Station

If you haven't taken your kids to the neighborhood fire station, you're missing a great field trip. We all know that firefighters are hired for their fitness, courage, and resistance to acrophobia but we've never met a firefighter who wasn't great with kids. On a single visit to the station, kids can get close-up views of firefighting equipment and the big red truck (sometimes they get to blast the siren!). They also get stickers and fire safety handouts suitable to color.
