To support families in the process, on May 19th Creating Together families and caregivers enjoyed an exciting trip out to the Parkdale Fire Station on Lansdowne Avenue. The kids enjoyed meeting the firefighters, and learning about fire safety. As always, the staff at our local fire station were great with the kids, and a great time was had by all.
A huge thank you to the Fire Fighters of our city, for the work they do in keeping us safe!
