Responding to emergencies, bravely putting out fires, rescuing people in need- everyone loves role-playing a Firefighgter. Offering children the chance to really take on the persona and confidence that a Firefighter needs requires a hardwearing Firefighter uniform To make the whole Firefighter experience as realistic as possible our Fire Station pdf’s, available in English or Irish allow you to set up a role play area quickly and easily.

Make your own Fire Station
Our printable Fire Station pack includes lots of resources so that you can easily set up a Fire Station dramatic-play area of your own. In addition to the “I am a…” theme poster there is another large format poster, Welcome to the Fire Station that can be used to designate a specific role-play area as the Fire Station. The pdf includes A4 posters for the walls, charts and certificates. We have included plenty of mark-making and writing opportunities with Incident Forms, and of course, all little Firefighters should complete a fire safety check so the Fire Safety Checklist will come in handy! The personalisable Firefightger Name Badges can be filled in and attached to a lanyard so that everyone knows just who is leading the way during Fire drills.
What is included
We always recommend using real-life and authentic props whenever possible. In the case of the Firefighters, you might not want to go so far as using fore extinguishers but you could think about using a discharged kitchen-sized extinguisher under adult supervision. Garden hoses and wellies make great, practical accessories. Don’t forget to set up a call centre area with a desk and chair for a workstation, an old computer monitor, a keyboard and some stationary. Folders and a clipboard would be going that bit further and if you can get hold of an old phone all the better. Everything you need in terms of forms, signs, and posters are in the pdf pack.

“The packs are such a useful resource but to have them available in Irish is just amazing. Using them saves me so much time and I am so happy with the standard of the Irish, it is really brilliant.
