Feelings of joy and excitement could hardly be contained when San Cayetano Cheetahs were able to visit and tour the Tubac Fire Department. Grade levels were split into three groups which rotated through the stations with the help of the firefighters. At each station, students learned about the purpose of the fire truck, the emergency helicopter, and the inside of the station.

Students were also able to explore the inside of the helicopter and fire truck. Firefighters also demonstrated how quickly they can put on their gear. Did you know their gear weighs an estimated 40 lbs?

The station tour provided an opportunity for students to feel comfortable around first responders while learning about the importance of safety. Kindergarten Bryan said he was “Excited because he had never been close to a fire truck or firefighter, it was cool!”

Thank you to the Tubac Fire Department for being so welcoming and teaching all of our students safety and awareness!
