Fire Station #30 with the Scouts

I have wanted to go to a fire station with the boys but never got around to it so when Thad mentioned that he was taking the Scouts on Wednesday I asked if we could tag along and I’m sure glad that we did.

The scouts were so shy at first but the little guys were so excited they couldn’t hold it in. Eventually the scouts got into it and William and Adam trying on the super heavy gear. They got a tour around the fire house and got to ask any question that they wanted. They got to climb in the fire trucks as well and had a blast! I was so impressed by these firefighters—they were so good with all of the boys (ages 1-14). It was a great night! Here are a few pictures!

Here is the outside of the station. It is a beautiful building!

Here are Sam and Nate by one of the fire engines. They also had fun sitting up in the engine pretending to drive as well!

Here is the group in front of the quint. It is named that way since it has five uses. Captain Bauer is in front with the boys!
