Date & Time:

Instructor: Homewood Fire Chief Robert Grabowski

Ages: 12-16 years old

  • Thinking about a career as a firefighter?

  • What decisions do firefighters make on the scene?

  • What's the science and math behind fighting fires? 

Pump It Up shows you how firefighters go about fighting a fire. This is a combination class, featuring classroom activities and work outside with the fire truck. We will include problem solving, firefighter math calculations, and hands-on learning using the water pumping system and hoses of Homewood Fire Departments' fire engine!

Pump It Up is a great introduction to Fire Sciences.

A fun afternoon for teens to explore a career path with the Fire Department.

Students will need to bring a sack lunch, towel, change of clothes (they might get wet!) and wear closed-toe shoes to Pump It Up.
