Fire, fire!

Class One at Thrussington Primary School were lucky as there was no 999 call and the fire brigade were able to come out and visit them.
They showed their fire engine and the fluorescent pattern on the side which looks like battenberg cake!
They showed the 16 hoses and the pump and the children learned that they have 1800 litres of water on board. 
They also got to see the cutters to cut the roof off a car and the fan that helps to blow smoke out of a room after a fire. 
The children got to sit inside the back of the fire engine and see what a fire fighter’s uniform looks like.
They even showed them how the mask and oxygen tank work. 
Finally they all helped to squirt the water and the sirens sounded as they left!
