Firefighter Story Times

Once again, the Seattle Fire Department is partnering with the Seattle Public Libraries for a reading program aimed at increasing early childhood literacy and raising awareness of home fire safety.  This ever popular event that traditionally occurs in October, has been extended to the summer months for the second year in a row to accommodate the overwhelming popularity.

Firefighters will read the book No Dragons for Tea to preschool children at seven local Seattle branch libraries.  Important safety messages include "Firefighters are your friend", "Crawl low under smoke" and "Get out and stay out.  The event will also include a chance to explore a fire engine and give young children the opportunity to get close to firefighters as they put on and explain their protective gear.

Please join Seattle Firefighters for an engaging story time at Seattle Public Libraries!  (See below for locations and story times
