Daisy Meeting 9: Respect Authority and Safety Award Field Trip

For this meeting I arranged for a tour of a local Fire Station House.  I filled out the required form and let them know that we needed the Fire Fighters to cover certain topics in order for them to earn their Safety Award.

We had the families meet at the Fire Station at our normal meeting time and made a Field Trip out of it.
