If you want your child to become a fireman, then you really should promote your local fire department. I would take your child to your local fire department. Your child would get to talk to the firemen and tour the fire station. Your child could even slide down the fire pole or get a ride on a fire engine. Most fire departments have programs to promote fire safety. You could have your child participate in these programs. Some even make children junior firemen. I would check with your local fire department for these programs. If there are programs available, then I would get your child involved in these programs.
At the fire department, you should have your child ask the fireman what they like about their jobs. Most people will share their views and opinions about their jobs. I am sure being a fireman is an exciting and rewarding job. Most firemen enjoy the excitement of the job and helping people in a difficult time. You should promote this to your child as a great job helping people.
There are also college programs to train people to become fire fighters. I would check in to these programs and get information on the programs. There are also fire fighters that work in the forest service and aviation. I would visit those programs to get your child interested in becoming a fire fighter.
You could also buy your child some fireman toys such as a ladder truck and fireman’s hat. These toys would promote your child’s interests in becoming a fireman. You could also take him to local parades to see the fire engines. Most parades include the local fire department. Most firemen must be in good physical shape. You get your child active in sports and physical activity if he or she wants to become a fireman.
You could also volunteer in your local community to be volunteer fireman. Most small communities can not afford a full time fire department so members of the community volunteer to serve their community as volunteer firemen. It would be a great example for your child to become a fireman. You could let him wear some of the clothes, hat and jackets that the fire department uses. You would also be doing a great service for your community.
You and your child could also watch movies and shows about firemen. The movies would promote being a fireman as great career. There are numerous movies were firemen are the heroes. You tell your child that they should become a hero and fireman. You could explain to you child that if they want to help people, then they too could become a fireman.
