How Long Might it Take a Firefighter to Put on His Fire-Fighting Gear?


First grade students are also learning about fire safety – and they were excited to receive a visit from a local fire fighter!

During his discussion with the students on fire safety, firefighter Mr. Roop gave himself a fun challenge! He asked the students and teachers to time him to see how long it would take him to put on all of his fire-fighting gear.

Can you guess the time it took him? If you guessed less than two minutes, you were right! To be exact, Mr. Roop prepared for fighting a fire by putting all of his gear on in only one minute and 32 seconds! Wow, that is impressive!

Thank you, Mr. Roop, for teaching our first grade students about fire safety!
