Today we headed over with some friends to the open day at the fire station in Höchst.
There were several emergency vehicles for you to explore
D found the horn
He was so amazed at being in an actual fire engine he could barley smile!
There were people with each vehicle answering any questions you may of had & telling you information about the vehicle.
D loved being inside the ambulance
You could use a hose to put out the flames
D loved this & must of done this about 10 times!
You could use a fire extinguisher to put out an actual fire.
There was a bouncy castle
A first aid section
The boys loved seeing all the firemen uniforms
Throughout the afternoon there were demonstrations.
For one a fire engine came down the road with it’s sirens on
a team of young firefighters worked together to put out a pretend fire in a car
The second demonstration showed what happens when you put water on burning oil!
I thought the loo signs were quite funny!
There was plenty of seating in the fire station, with drinks, a large cake selection & off course the usual Bratwurst & Pommes.
Its a great event for the whole family,especially for those fire engine fans young or old! The boys had a great afternoon climbing in & out of emergency vehicles & putting out fires. I’m already looking forward to the next one.
Above are details of some more coming up in the next few weeks.
