Sing a Song

I'm a Fire Fighter (sung to "Mulberry Bush")

This is the way I pull on my boots, pull on my boots, pull on my boots;
This is the way I pull on my boots,
I'm a fire fighter.

This is the way I drive the fire truck, drive the fire truck, drive the fire truck,
This is the way I drive the fire truck,
I'm a fire fighter.

This is the way I fasten the hose, fasten the hose, fasten the hose,
This is the way I fasten the hose,
I'm a fire fighter.

This is the way I squirt the water, squirt the water, squirt the water,
This is the way I squirt the water,
I'm a fire fighter.

This is the way I climb the ladder, climb the ladder, climb the ladder,
This is the way I climb the ladder,
I'm a fire fighter.

Try This

Make an evacuation plan in case of a fire. Teach your child to “Stop, Drop, and Roll.” Visit a fire station (call ahead first) and see if your child can take a closer look at a fire truck and a fire fighter’s uniform.
