Today, Firefighter Rob from Shrewsbury Fire Station came to visit us in Haughmond to talk about his job as part of our topic ‘Fire, Fire’. Rob talked to us about how to stay safe around fires and what to do if we ever discover a fire as well as the importance of checking our smoke alarms at home on a regular basis.
Rob talked about how to dial 999 and he has challenged us all to learn our address with our grown ups at home, including our postcode, as this is really important information. He also talked to us about the other things he does as part of his job, including rescuing people from floods and cats from trees!
Rob also showed us some of his equipment and his fire-fighting clothes. We couldn’t believe that he only has 90 seconds from when the alarm goes in the fire station to get his gear on and be in the fire engine! Mrs Gregory set us a challenge to see if we can get dressed and ready for school in just 90 seconds!
