Kids will be able to learn about fire safety, first aid and teamwork at “Fire and Ice,” a free event hosted by the Victoria Fire Department.

The event will be 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. July 21 at the Victoria Youth Sports Complex, 211 N. Ben Wilson St. (in the basketball court area).

Firefighters and EMTs will educate participants on fire safety and how to administer CPR and first aid. Teamwork is essential in the “fire safety world,” which is why team building exercises will be included in the day’s activities. 

The event will have a maximum of 30 participants. Participants must register in advance here. Caregivers must bring a completed photo release waiver and liability waiver the day of the event. 

Children may be dropped off at the location once forms are completed. Each participant is asked to bring a bottle of water and a snack. 

Baskin-Robbins will be the “ice” to our “fire” and will provide free ice cream at the closing of the event.
