STORY IDEA OF THE WEEK

Thursday, August 22, 2019
10 a.m. – Orlando Firefighters Stop, Drop and Read
Randall R. Tuten Orlando Fire Museum, 814 East Rollins Street

The Orlando Fire Department will wrap up their summer story-time series on Thursday at the Randall R. Tuten Orlando Fire Museum with a special story time program featuring City of Orlando Firefighters.

The department’s Books and Badges program is an opportunity for firefighters to teach kids the basics of fire safety while building relationships with the community and showing students that they too can be everyday heroes by helping others.

City of Orlando Firefighters will read to children during the museum’s story time and provide a fire safety lesson. Orlando Fire Department Engineer Jennifer Klinger will be available to discuss the important connections that are made through the program and why firefighters enjoy the opportunity to share their love for reading.
