This short DVD is basically a series of original songs about fire trucks and fire safety played over a collage of fire trucks, emergency vehicles, and firefighters. The DVD will appeal particularly to pre-school and early primary-grade school children. The songs are catchy and easy-to-learn. The video contains mostly shots from parades, though there are a few shots of vehicles racing from a firehouse to an emergency. Also included on the DVD is a segment with a firefighter talking about fire safety. Children will learn about the basics of fire safety including stop, drop, and roll; what to do if your house catches on fire; and the importance of making an escape plan ahead of time. Segments on the DVD include:

"Lots and Lots of Fire Trucks"
"Call 911"
"Fireman Jim's Safety Tips"
"Stop, Drop, and Roll"
"Your Home Safety Plan"
"It's an Emergency"
"Heroes Brave and Tall"
"Great Big Fire Trucks"
"Fire Trucks in Action"

The DVD includes a special menu (Classroom Section) that can be used by teachers, educators, presenters, etc. who would like to use a small portion of the video in class or as a presentation.
For what it is, LOTS & LOTS OF FIRE SONGS & SAFETY TIPS isn't too bad off a DVD. The only criticism I have is that the segment with the firefighter is of a lower quality video than the rest of the DVD; it's taken from completely different footage than anything else in the video and hasn't aged well. Really young kids won't notice, but by the time kids are in 2nd grade they will notice things like this, especially since they've been raised all their lives around hi-def, CGI-perfected media. Recommended for children 2-8 years-old.
