The Fort Wayne Fire Department teaches the children basic fire safety lessons. There is an emphasis on what dangerous household items to avoid, such as outlets, stoves, matches, lighters, fireplaces, candles, etc. They are taught the importance of having an escape plan in case of a fire as well as to have working smoke detectors in the home. Being able to interact with the fire fighters in normal clothing and then in full gear helps to familiarize the children so they are not frightened by their rescuer if they are ever in an emergency situation.
The kids have a chance to test out their dribbling, passing, and kicking skills. They learn cooperation and team building skills while working on their large motor skills and coordination.
