Songs
I'm a Fire Fighter
Sung to: "Mulberry Bush"

This is the way I pull on my boots, pull on my boots, pull on my boots;
This is the way I pull on my boots,
I'm a fire fighter.

This is the way I drive the fire truck, drive the fire truck, drive the fire
truck,
This is the way I drive the fire truck,
I'm a fire fighter.

This is the way I fasten the hose, fasten the hose, fasten the hose,
This is the way I fasten the hose,
I'm a fire fighter.

This is the way I squirt the water, squirt the water, squirt the water,
This is the way I squirt the water,
I'm a fire fighter.

This is the way I climb the ladder, climb the ladder, climb the ladder,
This is the way I climb the ladder,
I'm a fire fighter.
Wheels on the Fire Engine
Tune of "Wheels on the Bus"

We use the siren-Woo-ohh/woo-ooh, ladder- up & down, seat belts- click, lights- blink, hose- shhh, dog- woof, and so on and so on.
Just use your imagination with everything on the truck!
Fire Truck
Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot".

I'm a big red fire truck long and stout,
When I am needed, I roar and shout.
People love to see me rush about,
Just turn me on and head me out.

I'm a big red fire truck stout and long,
Here's is my ladder, tall and strong.
When I get a call, you'll hear my song,
Just climb aboard and turn me on.
Craft
Paper Fire Truck Cut out a fire engine, wheels, and a fire ladder using the templates provided. Attach the wheels to the truck. Next attach the ladder with a brass fastener so that you can move it up and down and then decorate your fast flashing fire engine. Add some fire fighters and a fire dog if you have time!
