Firefighters respond to emergencies. These are situations where people might be hurt. In this video, the first vehicle is an ambulance. Ambulances take people to the hospital. People can also receive medical care in an ambulance. The second vehicle is a fire engine. The firefighters are going to help out.

Fires can be very dangerous. It is important that firefighters can get ready quickly. Fire stations are built so firefighters can move fast. Some fire stations have a pole. Firefighters slide down the pole. The pole gets them from the upstairs living area to the vehicles quickly.
