Fire Safety Presentation
Thank you to Fireman Jim and Fireman Tony and their team for coming to Amy Belle to teach our Kindergarten through 3rd graders about fire safety! We loved having them at our school. It was especially fun to climb into the fire truck and ambulance, and to squirt the fire hose! We learned how to be safe in a fire, and we especially learned that we have some awesome firemen who care about us and our safety!
