We had a fantastic day today for our school tour. We started off the day with a big walk to Nenagh Fire Station. There we met Firefighters Anthony & Peter who told us all about smoke alarms, all about their gear and they let us try on their fire hats.
Next we went outside to see the fire truck. First responder Peter showed us his big first aid bag that he uses at the scene of fires and accidents. He let us use his stethoscope. We got to see all the equipment carried on the fire truck and Anthony showed us how water stops fire with a ballon filled of water.
The fun really started when we got to use the firemans hose. We got to see a really old fire truck and our fireman Sam got to sit on it and ring the bell!
