Seattle – The Seattle Fire Department, in partnership with the Seattle Public Library, has brought back the popular summer Firefighter Story Times series.
Seattle firefighters will be at eight local branches in July and August to teach fire safety through the endearing story of a little girl who befriends a real, fire-breathing dragon to teach about fire safety smarts.
After each read-along, firefighters get dressed in their protective firefighting gear – one piece at a time – to teach the children not to be scared if they ever need to be rescued by a firefighter. The program ends with a tour of the crew’s fire engine that’s outside.
This fire safety education program is geared toward children between 3 and 5 years old.
