The Magnolia class had the field trip preschool dreams are made of when they visited Fire Station number 2 in Berkeley. In anticipation of the big event, students baked up a yummy batch of carrot cake muffins to give to the firefighters as a show of appreciation.

Upon their arrival at station number 2, the students were greeted by our very friendly and informative guides. Many of our kiddos had a peek inside the fire engine, and took a look at the fire truck and ambulance. Then students got to watch as one of the fire fighters put on all of the gear they wear whenever they go out on a call. The class had a chance to ask questions, and then it was time for a snack and for sharing the muffins we brought. As they were wrapping up our visit, an emergency call came in and the class quickly cleared the driveway so that the fire engine and ambulance could speed away. It was a very exciting end to their visit!
