Grand Rapids Children's Museum's popular exhibit "To the Rescue" returns on Tuesday, September 1!

"To the Rescue" is about teaching kids how to stay safe and having fun while learning. At the exhibit kids will have a chance to steer a firetruck, slide down an escape slide, dress up as a rescue worker, provide medical care in an ambulance, pilot a rescue helicopter, and learn who to contact in case of an emergency.

“It’s important to learn how to be prepared for emergencies and be comfortable with what to do in an emergency, should the need ever arise,” said Jack Woller, Associate Director at Grand Rapids Children's Museum. “This exhibit also gives kids early exposure to career paths such as fire-fighters, emergency doctors or nurses, and police officers.”

"To the Rescue" is part of the Grand Rapids Children's Museum’s rotating seasonal exhibits and regularly appears in the fall for schools’ Safety Month programs.

"To the Rescue" runs through January 17, 2016.
