I’m Going to be a Firefighter is an older published book but still a good one with real-life pictures. This is a story told from the perspective of a young girl about her dad’s job as a volunteer firefighter. With each page and picture in the story, she tells how he listens on his radio for news of a fire and then rushes to the fire station to head to the location of the fire.
She tells how she and her sisters pretend to be firefighters and what they do in case they smell fire or see smoke. When her dad returns from fighting out the real fire at a store in town, the girls listen to his stories about the fire and what he had to do to put out the flames and smoke.
Do you know what to do in a fire emergency?
What do you do if you see smoke or smell fire?
What number do you call in an emergency? What do you say to the emergency personnel on the phone?
If you must get out of your house for smoke or fire, where do you go, especially if you and your family go out different doors of your house?
Make sure you have a family emergency plan.
