Brownies & Daisies Go Bananas at Fire Engine Volunteer Department 39

The Brownies and Daisies had a great visit at Fire Engine Volunteer Department 39 on March 13. The Daisies earned the Respect Authority Petal and the Brownies completed their First Aid Badge. Two women EMTs and a woman firefighter spoke to them about how and when to call 911, the importance of wearing helmets when riding bicycles, how to apply band aids and demonstrated putting on the firefighter gear apparatus and air tanks. Since Girl Scouts are so well known for their fabulous songs and singing everywhere, the girls concluded the session by singing “Go Bananas” as the firefighters joined in. The visit ended with everyone climbing onto the fire trucks. This was their most favorite field trip of the year so far.
