Year 2 had a visit from Fire Fighter Brian from the Fire Service today. Brian taught the children what to do in the event of a fire in their home, how to alert others in the house, how to contact the fire brigade as well as the importance of getting out of the house and not returning (leaving all rescue missions to the fire fighters).
Some of the children also enjoyed the opportunity of trying on the boots, helmet and Fire Fighter uniform.
Brian set the children homework - to ask their parents to test their smoke alarms at home. Brian told the children to contact the Fire Service if the alarms were not working and that they would come out to their home to fit a new one free of charge.
