Summer is here and you’re trying to find fun, educational and economical things to do with your children.  Fire_Station_83Have you considered taking them to your local fire station?  Here in Encino we are fortunate to have some of the finest fire fighters in the world serving us at Fire Station #83.  These brave individuals are devoted to keeping us all safe and sound on a daily basis.  But when there are no immediate emergencies they are almost always willing to educate our children about fire safety. 

If you want to take your children for a tour of your local fire station call ahead and ask if you can come over, and make sure to tell them how many people are in your group.  You have to be flexible because if there is an emergency, the fire fighters will, of course, have to cancel your outing.  Los Angeles Fire Station 83But if you are willing to be flexible you will find that your kids will have a great time visiting a functional fire station and meeting the men and women who keep it running.  Make sure that you bring your camera with you.  It’s not unusual for the fire fighters to let your children don the entire garb of a firefighter and that is a photo op you won’t want to miss.

In Los Angeles you can contact your local fire station for non-emergencies by dialing 3-1-1.  A morning or afternoon at your local fire station can be fun and informative and it’s absolutely free.  If you visit fire station #83, tell them Carol Wolfe sends her best because nobody does it better than our local firefighters!
