Firematic Crafts
  • Games
  • Books
  • Puzzles
  • Interactive Stations







Learn About it, Do it! Think About it Interactive Program:

This program features five stations located throughout the Museum. Children can learn about a firefighting subject, do a hands-on activity related to what they have learned and think about the questions posed to them concerning the activity they just did. The stations are as follows:

Bucket Brigade:
Simulates an old-fashioned bucket brigade using reproduction leather buckets and balls to simulate water.
Pump it UP!!!:
Learn about and work different pumps and a pump panel!
Parade Activity:
Select your instruments, form your lines, select your musical accompaniment and parade around the gallery to the sounds of a real firemen's parade band.
Turnout Gear:
Try on the gear that the real firemen wear when fighting a fire or the child-size reproduction firemen's gear.

Sequencing Interactive:
Do you know which fire apparatus or fire gear came first, second, etc.? This activity challenges children to put the colorful fire truck and firemen magnets in the correct order.

 


Creative Play on Selected Fire Trucks:
 
The Museum offers children the opportunity to immerse themselves in the experience of being a firefighter by offering creative dress up and play on designated fire trucks. Child and adult-sized turnout gear is available for children to wear and five trucks have been designated as creative play stations in the Museum. Children can sit behind the wheel of a real fire truck in the gear the pros wear and let their imaginations soar!
