Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Jim, the firefighter, greets a multicultural class at the fire station. He tells them that he is a first responder in emergencies. Fire fighters do a lot more than just fight fires. The help out at traffic accident, they rescue people trapped in floods, and they deal with medical emergencies. They are trained to put out fires in buildings and to stop wildfires in forests. Firefighters also help families devise fire escape plans in their homes. They sometimes visit schools to talk about fire safety. Jim shows the students the tools inside the fire truck including an ax, a fire hose, and an air pack. Then he extends the ladder, attaches the hook, and climbs up the side of a building. Colorful, cartoon-like illustrations add interest. Includes a glossary, bibliography, index, and directions for making a fire escape plan. A good introduction to the career of firefighting for young children. Part of the "Community Helpers" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
