Firefighter Jerry, our friend from Mentor Fire Department, talked to the kids about water and boating safety during a special story time this month at our Main Branch.

The children learned:

  • Don’t go into the water without an adult’s permission
  • Listen to the lifeguard
  • Don’t run around the pool because it might be slippery
  • If they’re on a boat, make sure that they have a life vest and that the vest fits.
  • If someone falls from a boat into the water, you can throw them a rope or inner tube; but do not jump in after them.

Firefighter Jerry joins us for a story time each month. He’ll be back at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 18, at our Main Branch.

The story time is open to all ages. No registration is required.

If your children attend one of our Firefighter Friends story times, they’ll be entered into a raffle where they can win lunch with the Mentor firefighters in December.

If your favorite kids would like lunch with the firefighters, then we have good news. They can win a special meal with Mentor Fire too. All they need is a little luck… and to come to story time.

Our Firehouse Friends story time returns at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 17, at our Main Branch. That’s where Mentor firefighters read to kids about fire safety and tell them what it’s really like to be a firefighter.

The story time is open to kids of all ages. Each month they attend, they will receive a raffle for a chance to win lunch with the firemen at the end of the year.

What’s better than story time? Story time with our friends from Mentor Fire Department!

They joined us for a special story time earlier this month where kids learned about fire safety and what it’s really like to be a firefighter.

Afterward, the kids each got a fire helmet of their own. Plus, they got to check out the fire truck.

The firemen will be back for more stories at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20, at our Main Branch.

The story time is open to all ages.

If your children attend one of our Firefighter Friends story times, they’ll be entered into a raffle where they can win lunch with the Mentor firefighters in December.
