Children’s Learning Activity Contact the local fire department and request they visit your program. In an emergency, children may be fearful of firefighters in full gear. It is recommended that children first meet the firefighters in their regular uniforms then watch the firefighters put on the emer- gency response gear, including breathing apparatus. Conduct regular evacuation drills. As children become familiar and comfortable with the evacuation procedures, vary drills so that children become familiar with two ways out. Also, hold drills at various times during the program day, such as during choice time or when eating. 9 COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
