Daisy Petals and Journeys at the fire station

Girl Scout Daisies from Steamboat Springs were treated to a visit with the Steamboat Springs Fire Department. We were working on our “Respect Authority” Petal AND parts of the “Three Cheers for Animals Daisy” Journey.

We learned that our firefighters eat dinner together, sleep for two nights at a time at the station, help people in car accidents, people that are hurt, put out fires, and help lots of animals!

We learned how to check our bedroom door with the back of our hand to feel if it is hot, if the fire alarm in our house goes off!

We learned about different trucks and all the tools they carry, and that firefighters wear special gear, so fire doesn’t burn them when they save people and pets in a fire.

We learned that firefighters can help pets of all different sizes if the pets have breathed in smoke.

We think you should be a go-getter to be a firefighter. It also helps to be innovative, a risk-taker, and a leader in this job.
