Stop. Drop. Roll.

We're coming up on Fire Safety Week in the public schools. Reiko's class went on a field trip to the Fire Hall and I volunteered as a parent to help. I'm not sure my presence helped her embrace the newness of the experience. I don't think Rei would have been as clingy had I not been there.

Still, I was glad to be part of the morning adventure and meet some of her friends. Everyone was quite well versed in the procedure of Stop, Drop & Roll. Whenever the fire chief asked the kids a question, the answer was always an enthusiastic "Stop, Drop & Roll!" regardless of the question.

The Sparky the Safety Dog video was a little dated. I seemed to remember it from the days when I was the keener yelling out "Stop, Drop & Roll!"
