We are starting a new program for kids. On June 25, 2016, we will be hosting a one-day kids’ firefighter experience in which we will take 24 lucky 7-10-year-olds and teach
them the basics of being a firefighter. We will have a series of evolutions that will teach the children such things as fire behavior, search and rescue, hose operations and much more!
The day begins at 8:30 am with a short orientation. At 9:00 learning evolutions will begin and lunch will be provided at 12:30. After lunch will be another short evolution and the program will end at 2:30. The best opportunities for pictures and videos will be during the last evolution and at the conclusion of the day.
The cost for participants is $60. This covers the cost of your child’s “fire gear”. The gear includes a turnout coat, turnout pants, and adjustable suspenders. The coat will be customized with your child’s name with a maximum of 14 letters. Of course, this isn’t real firefighter gear, but it is much heavier and more reinforced than a Halloween costume. Along with the gear, your child will also receive a pair of rubber boots, a plastic helmet, a gear bag and bracelet.
You can fill out an application on our website by clicking HERE. Selection preference will be given to residents of Cottleville Fire District.
