Many of us have a fond memory of a school field trip to the local fire station to see just how a fire truck works. You get to try on a jacket, touch the fire pole, and sometimes even get a chance to sit in an actual fire truck. This month, the kids at our Cypress location got to make memories with courageous firefighting heroes!

Apara Autism Cypress Clinic Director, Stephanie Lopez, reached out to the Cy-Fair Fire Department Station 3 for a Fire Truck tour. They were eager to come out to share a morning of education and fun with our kiddos!

“The kids had so much fun learning about the firetruck and enjoyed spending time with the fire department members! The gentlemen were so great showing the kids the truck, how things worked, their gear and the lights! We thank the Cy-Fair Fire Department Station 3 for their commitment to the community and taking the extra mile to make our kids smile.” – Stephanie Lopez, Apara Autism Cypress Clinical Director

During this private Apara event, the children had the opportunity to explore a real fire truck and all the equipment it holds! Then the firefighters showed the kids their special clothing and gear that helps keep them safe when responding to an emergency.

This hands on experience was fun and rewarding for both the children and staff, sure to become cherished memories. Not only did everyone get to learn about the tools and equipment at the fire station, but they also got an inside look into what it means to be a firefighter. Thank you to everyone who participated at Cy-Fair Fire Department Station 3!
