Fire Station Visit

We woke up at morning and got into the car and drove to Whitehorse to the fire Station number 2. I was excited. And we walk all the way around the station to the second doors. We when inside and upstairs, we saw the kitchen and the dispatcher up stairs. The dispatcher let us hear the sound that goes on for the firefighter to get there uniform on and go to the truck and put on the sirens.

Then we when to see the fire trucks in the bay. The bay is a garage. I got to get into the pumper fire truck. I was a little dark and light front the truck and the windows make it enough to see. There were radios and buttons and separate seats. In the bay there was an ambulance and I wonder why they had an ambulance at the fire station.

We were just about to see the hoses when the alarm when off and the firefighter had to go. We had to go back to the kitchen and the other way around to the car. I was sad because I hadn’t seen the hoses and saw. On the way we saw an old fire truck and mom took a picture of me near it.

We when home, on our way home we saw the Carcross fire truck they were testing the hoses; we went to look at them. And when they were done testing they let us come closer. The man is charge open the doors of the truck so I can see the equipment. I got in the truck too, it wasn’t as dark as the other one. There was handles to control the hoses and turn on and off the water. I also got into the very front and he let me put on the light and he put on the sirens.

And then he showed me a picture of the truck in Whitehorse.

  1. Hi Laurick, how lucky you are to have to have seen two fire trucks in one day! Excellent picture!

  2. Hi Laurick, Did the fire station in Whitehorse have a pole that the firemen can slide down? Thanks for sharing your learning!
