CINCINNATI - Cincinnati firefighters are partnering with a local group to teach fire safety to homeless children.

Cincinnati Fire Department and Cincinnati Fire Foundation are teaming up with Faces without Places’ Yellow Bus Summer Camp to educate children on fire safety and give tours through their fire safety house.

The Yellow Bus Tour is for children ages 5 through 12 who are experiencing homelessness. Throughout the eight-week program, children will work on improving math and reading skills, nutritional and exercise habits.

The fire safety day will include carnival games, a bouncy house, a DJ, goetta nachos and sliders. The Cincinnati Fire Foundation received a grant through the Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s Summertime Kids Program in 2012 and will provide safety bags for each child.
