My kids love Chuggington and trains in general so when we heard about the new Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue, we were very excited. If your kids haven't heard of Chuggington, then you need to check this out. My son loved that it came with a new train. He was very mad that he was supposed to share with his sister.

I am pretty sure that we have watched the disc about ten times already and my kids are still loving it. Today, March 31st, is Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day! We were sent a cool fire patrol kit to celebrate with and for my children to help learn great tips about fire. You can see pics of them with their fire hats and badges. My son has not taken his off. He was very mad I kept taking photos. Ignore the dirty face. I had a birthday recently (the big 3-0) and we still have cake so he thinks he can sneak it without me noticing.
He was supposed to be sharing his new train with his sister but he just shoved all his old trains at her and laid in the middle of the floor to play. I think Firechugger Asher (that's the new train's name) is going to be one of his favorite because he loves firefighters. We live about a block from our local fire station and he is always so excited when we pass them if the firetruck is out. We went on a tour when he was two and he was hooked from then on.
So even though she had her hat on backwards most of the day, she still loved Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day. I managed to get one good pic of her last night when I first gave them their fire hats.
We also had this fun coloring page to color and I think Moriah liked that best. She loves to color. Click on the highlighted link below the picture to download the PDF.
In honor of “Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day,” and to help keep your family and young trainees safe all year-round, here are some important tips from Firechugger Asher and the National Fire Protection Association:
Asher says, “Plan ahead!”
Create a home escape plan so every member of your family knows what to do and where to go if there’s a fire. Designate a meeting spot, such as a tree or mailbox, that’s a safe distance from the home. And practice your home fire drill both at night and during the day.
Asher says, “Stop a fire before it starts!”
Keep matches and lighters out of sight and out of reach from children. Store them up high, preferably in a locked cabinet or drawer. It’s also important to teach kids that lighters and matches are tools for adults only and that they should tell a grown-up if they see these items lying around.
Asher says, “Cool it in the kitchen!”
Always keep an eye on the stove while you’re cooking, and use a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on. Create a “kid-free zone” around the stove as well as areas where hot food and drinks are prepared. And make sure to keep anything that can catch fire, including oven mitts and towels, away from hot appliances!
Asher says, “Sound the alarm! “
Smoke detectors are a key part of a home fire escape plan. Make sure to install smoke detectors on every floor of the home, especially inside and outside bedrooms. Don’t forget to test all smoke alarms at least once a month!
Asher says, “Stay low and stay out! “
If, during a fire, you have to escape through smoke, get low, go under the smoke and close the doors behind you as you leave each room. It’s crucial to remind children that, once outside, they should never go back inside for anything, including pets or toys. It’s best to wait to call the fire department until you get outside and are a safe distance away from the fire.
Asher says, “Follow these blazin’ safety tips and you’ll be in control and ready to roll if there’s ever a fire.”
