Firefighters at Station 1 Make Fire Safety Fun

1 Comment


Preschoolers from the Helen Gorden Child Development Center visited Station 1 to see and touch the fire truck, engine, squad, dive van, trench van, rescue craft, and equipment. The kids also learned about high angle rope, trench, confined space, and structural collapse rescue. 

Firefighter Trevor was on hand to spend special time with the kids to talk about important life safety skills such as how to prevent fires, the proper action to take during a fire, and not to be frightened of a firefighter who is there to help you during an emergency situation.

The Helen Gorden Child Development Center is Portland State University's full-day infant/toddler, preschool and kindergarten program and laboratory, which serves children aged four-months to six years.

SAFETY TIPS:  Parents and guardians, please help your children

memorize their full names, address, and telephone number. 

It's also important to educate your children how and when

to use emergency telephone numbers such as 9-1-1.

Help your child learn more about fire safety in a fun and interactive way on the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)’s Sparky the Great Fire Dog’s website at
