Fire Brigade Visit

Nursery Friends were excited to welcome the St Albans Fire and Rescue Service today. Firefighter Simon explained that they help the other emergency services, attend car accidents and sometimes rescue animals, as well as put out fires.

Firefighters have to wear special clothes (which Mrs Jones modelled beautifully) when they are out fighting fires.

Nursery Friends inspected the fire engine and even sat in the cabin. The fire engine carries lots of equipment such as lights, fans, breathing apparatus, four ladders (the tallest one reaching up higher than the houses all around school), hoses and a tank full of water.Nursery Friends all had a go with the hose!
