This past weekend E and I visited the New York City Fire Museum for a special Fireman Sam Ultimate Heroes Day event. As some of you may know, October is Fire Safety Month so while at the event, we had the opportunity to experience interactive safety demonstrations with members of the FDNY. We also got to check out the new Fireman Sam toy line and had a sneak peek of the brand-new Fireman Sam: Ultimate Heroes movie that will debut on Amazon in November!
E couldn’t wait to check out the Fireman Sam toys and first went for the Fireman Sam Fire Engine Jupiter which has cool and realistic lights and sounds and even a water spray function! The Fire Station set includes a fully-movable action figure and accessories. Like the Fire Engine, the Fire Stations also has some light and sounds that any Fireman Sam fan is sure to enjoy! The Fire Station is definitely going on E’s holiday wish list! Make sure to check out all of the Fireman Sam Toys which are sold exclusively on Amazon!
All of the kids in attendance seemed to really enjoy the sneak peek of the Fireman Sam: Ultimate Heroes movie, including E who was entranced by the action packed movie! Check out the Synopsis:
Fireman Sam and his team are on a mission to save Pontypandy! When a hurricane threatens the town, emergencies pop up everywhere… from saving the Wildmen of Pontypandy to rescuing a group from the flooding mines to protecting their own new fire station. With new recruits, a new station, and a new rescue vehicle, these ultimate heroes are always ready to see the day!
Shortly after the sneak peak, the children heard from a member of the FDNY who discussed fire safety. After the discussion, the kids viewed a short video featuring Sparky the Fire Dog followed by a simulated fire event in a mock home environment.
I was really impressed with the how the children handled the simulated fire event, especially with their young ages! The kids and a few parents who were in the mock home went through a drill where the mock home was filled with theatrical smoke so that the children could practice how to properly escape a “fire” with the help of the instructor. I was so incredibly proud of E who handled the situation very well. I honestly expected her to be scared but boy, was I wrong! She and the other kids rocked that drill and as a parent, I appreciate this type of program.
We later explored the museum and had the chance to check out the different exhibits. There were a lot of great exhibits, most geared towards adults but others were appropriate for children and students. I recommend checking out the New York Fire Museum if you ever visit NYC! E really liked the getting to view the old fire trucks and they even have an area where the kids can try on gear such as hats, jackets, etc.
