Educational Tour to Central Fire Station

Frankly speaking, I've never been to a fire station. 
Neither did I thought that I could visit one on my own. 
So, when Margie suggested on bringing the kids 
to the fire station for an educational tour, 
I was a little apprehensive about it. 
How could you visit a place where it is full of buzzing activities!?!?! 
Where life & death is just split seconds away!?!? 

I remain skeptical, 
until I reached the fire station 
and confirmed with an official 
that there is indeed such a tour going on!

I am such a mountain turtle loh!

The highest it would go is 11 storey high....
Which leaves me a little worried...

Best of all,

Go week after week 
until the kids are sick of seeing that shiny red truck!

I've always wanted to bring R down to this as I had read it on the net as a really cool activity. Must remind myself to do it during our next home trip. Thanks for sharing
