This week we had our second visit from the local fire crew. Getting to see them taught us lots of valuable tips about how to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe in emergencies. It was an exciting experience to see a real fire truck in action and get to talk to some genuine local heroes. Everyone was very excited to share what they’d learned and remembered about fire safety.
After the excitement of touring the fire engine, we had a chance to reflect on the experience and discuss some of what we remembered about fire safety.
