Fire Safety

Hey, So fire safety is very important thing for Stephen and myself to teach our children. Here in Emporia, we had two chinese college students die in a fire because of non-working fire alarms. I have even heard stories of children hiding from the firemen during a fire on the house. So, when I heard about the fire safety fair at the fairground, I decided for the whole family that we had to go. Stephen decided it was worth waking up during the day and getting less sleep so that we could take our kids. We arrived at the fire and hopped in the super long line to get free hot dogs, popcorn, drink, and chips. While we were in line, I took Ginny to see some of the insides of fire trucks.
We then went inside to talk to the different booths inside about how to be safe during a fire and other things. It was a lot of fun and Ginny had a blast. After the booth we headed outside to watch the fire demostration. It was suppose to be how to properly put out a grease fire. Though, it became something to laugh at when six firefighters could not even set the grease on fire. All in all we had a great time.
