It's the sound of the siren, the pressure of the hose, the shiny polished trucks and the fearlessness of firefighters that fascinate youngsters. A friend recently hosted a red hot birthday bash for her four-year-old at their local station, and it was a fiery success! Though she put a lot of detail in the celebration, she did it without breaking the bank.

Check out this slideshow for tips on how to plan your own themed party.
