SCF Kids Fire Academy Week 1, Day 3: Calling 911 and Firefighters as Community Helpers
Post Date:03/26/2020 10:00 AM
In an emergency, seconds count. An emergency could be a fire or it could be someone in your home who is really sick or hurt and needs to go to the hospital. By completing the 911 Activity Book, you will learn about when to call 911 for help and when not to call.
Firefighters are helpers in the community and work at the fire station. They wear a uniform when at the station and wear a different uniform to fight fires called bunker gear. Watch this video to learn about the special gear that firefighters wear.
