This month, we’re once again partnering with the National Fire Protection Association to host Firefighter Fridays at LEGOLAND Florida Resort. On four consecutive Fridays starting Oct. 9, kids can meet and interact with their real-life heroes. And we’re not talking about our Master Model Builders!
The fun kicks off Oct. 9 as we celebrate Fire Prevention Week with NFPA. This year’s theme is “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep,” which encourages everyone to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Larger homes may need more alarms.
Highlights will include opportunities to learn about fire safety from local firefighters, a LEGO® City-themed brick build, a search-and-rescue photo op, a passport-stamp drawing for a LEGO prize pack and a high-spirited Rescue Academy competition in which three lucky families will be picked to compete against real firefighters. After all the excitement, first responders visiting the park can get a discount on cool treats from Firehouse Ice Cream by showing their identification.
Firefighter Fridays continue on Oct. 16, 23 and 30. On each date, families can learn fire safety tips, interact with local firefighters and enjoy giveaways.
