This week the Fire Brigade came to talk to us. Officer Dave talked all about fires. We learnt what we should do if we were near a fire: 'get down low and
go, go, go'.
Officer Dave showed us the different types of uniforms they wear depending on the type of fire. A building fire uniform is very heavy, the children were given the opportunity of lifting the uniform pants to see how heavy they were. The bushfire uniform, however, is lightweight. Officer Dave put on all the protective gear the firefighters need to wear and it completely covered him up. He said if we are in a fire, or see a fire, we need to find a phone and call 000.
We saw the huge fire truck and climbed into the cabin. We were then given a turn to help Officer James hold the hose and water the garden.
