Respect Authority

We took a field trip today to the local Leesburg Fire House, Company 20.

Troop 1138 + a few sibling brothers  :-)

We met with the fire fighters who work at the station.  We hung out in their kitchen and lounge to start.  The fire fighters talked to the kids about fire safety and what to do in an emergency.  We then got a tour of the fire station including the living areas where the fire fighters sleep when they stay overnight.

The kids got to go inside two of fire engines that were at the station.  Firefighter Smoothers demonstrated and explained all of the fire gear they have to put on when they go out to fight fires.

We gave the fire fighters some yummy Girl Scout cookies to say Thank You for giving our troop a talk and tour!

The girls earned their magenta "Respect Authority" petal today.  They took home a Respect Authority Color Page, also got a fun "Fire Station Visit" patch to wear on the back of the vest.
