Today was the day the fire engine and fire brigade came to visit Explorers class. The children were extremely excited and very intrigued to look around the Fire-Engine. Fireman Jay brought his crew along to show some of the equipment they use when going to an emergency. Fireman Joe put on the protective clothing and breathing equipment to show the children what they wear when going into a fire. Fireman Jay and Frazor showed the children some of the equipment that was inside the Fire-Engine and talked about the machinery to cut vehicles, the pump to retrieve water, one of the hose pipes and the ladders to help people stuck in tall buildings. We then listened to the sirens and watched the flashing lights! What a great experience for the children.The children received a fire-man Ted sticker. What a morning!
