On Thursday, 22nd June, we walked to the fire station. On arrival we were greeted by Dearan, the firefighter who gave us a talk about fire safety and what we should do in case of a fire. After this talk we all got a chance to try on the fire fighter's helmet.
Next Firefighter Dearan showed us the fire engine and what the different things are used for.
One of the most important things we learned was that if there is a fire it is very important that we do not hide from the firefighters. The firefighters showed us the special infra red machine they use to find people in the fire. We had great fun finding Bastian on the machine.
Then the real fun began, we got to use the hoses and tried to wet Ms Madden.
Firefighter John Paul took us for a spin in the fire engine with the sirens blaring. We really felt like real firefighters on their way to fight a fire.
Firefighter Anthony stood on top of a fire engine to take a photo of us. He was very high up.
The firefighters gave us a great tour of the fire-station. We learned a lot and had great fun. After lunch at the fire-station we headed back to school to tell Mrs Slattery all about it.
