Firefighters visit JRS

25 February 2020

On Friday 14th February 2020, Fir Class were very lucky to have a visit from four firefighters and their fire engine.

During the visit the children learnt that they should never try and tackle a fire themselves, but should leave all their belongings and get out from the building/house. Nathaniel tried on the protective gear and the firefighter explained how each item had been adapted to help them in their jobs.

Outside the children had a chance to look around the fire engine and the crew showed us some of their special equipment. We were even allowed to sit in the back of the fire engine!

When the firefighters left they challenged the children to find out the answer to two questions:
1) How many smoke alarms do you have in your house?
2) Where would the adults at home like you to go if the smoke alarm was to go off?
