Firefighters are big and brave and they help us in every way, like car crashes and fires. They rescue cats in trees with the ladder.
When they go to car crashes they use a tool called the Jaws of Life to break the jammed door and my dad might be there because he works for St Johns. Firefighters wear special breathing masks and a helmet, a nozzle, safety boots and oxygen tanks when they go to fires.
Fire trucks are a type of emergency truck. They have a loud siren and horn. It tells other cars to get out of the way!!! Fire trucks have powerful hoses that squirt out water to put out fires.
Firefighters train hard for emergencies.

Firefighters have special clothes that can hold up to 200 degrees maximum. Fire fighters use special tools to cut people out of cars at a car crash. Fire fighters get help from police and ambulances at heaps of accidents. They wear fire proof everything. Firefighters have really loud sirens so that cars know that there is a fire or an accident.

Firefighters are people that save us. They can help us in all sorts of ways in fires, car crashes and all sorts of other things.
After they come back from the fire they smell like ash. They wear breathing gear and big heavy boots. They have special fire phones that ring when there is a fire and the fire fighters will be off in a cloud of smoke to put out the fire before it spreads to the house beside it.
Fire trucks have big engines because they have very heavy loads to cart around, like the ladder and the hose and all the other things like that. Fire fighters have to have oxygen tanks on when they go inside a house that is on fire, otherwise they will not be able to breath.
Fire fighters try very hard to save everyone’s lives.
