Park School's Adopt a Firefighter Program





1st grade classes at Park School each adopted a firefighter from the Orland Park Fire Department this school year.  These firefighters came and visited the students approximately five times throughout the year, teaching the kids about fire safety.


At the end of the year, they brought a fire truck to the school and students were able to explore with guidance from the firefighters.  The students learned a lot about what it takes to be a firefighter, and had a lot of fun making this connection with the community!
