The Bombay Explosion (or Bombay Docks Explosion) occurred on 14 April 1944, in the Victoria Dock of Bombay (now Mumbai)

A freighter ship SS Fort Stikine carrying a mixed cargo of cotton bales, gold, and ammunition caught fire and was destroyed in two giant blasts.

The debris set surrounding ships and huts on fire killing around 800 to 1300 people

80,000 people were made homeless.

71 firemen lost their lives in the aftermath.

The Government of India, in recognition of those firemen who sacrificed their lives in Mumbai Dock Explosion and firemen all over the country who lay down their lives during fire-fighting, decided to observe 14th April as Fire Services Day

We decided to make a Show & tell Chart about our brave Firemen to take to school in the week of 14th April.

I sat with my daughter and asked her questions about what happens in a fire station and why do we need a fire station. When do firemen come and what sounds does a fire engine make, which number is to be dialled in case of fire etc etc.

Re-using the cardboard was the first idea. It was already folded into a 3 piece long strip so I could use it conveniently for the sequence of events.

Made my daughter colour the backside of the cardboard for it to look neat.

Then we created the first scene with paper cutouts. I drew the outlines and my daughter coloured inside.

You could also reinforce Fire safety by playing with toy fire trucks,making your own fire hats & paper vests. You could also cut large foam swimming noodles in half and use them for hoses (you may need to sit with the kids to show them how they should use these…any hitting each other with them results in that child losing the right to put out the fires!).

Add boxes with the tops and bottoms cut out and then cut out oval shapes near the tops of the 2 long sides of the boxes. The children can then pull the box up to their waists and be IN a fire truck! These are fun to decorate as well with lights, paint ladders and wheels on them, etc.!

You could also explore this topic with the help oof simple books. Here are a few on this topic.
