Fire Brigade Visit at Shepherd’s Hut Outdoor Nursery
The Shepherd’s Hut Outdoor Nursery in Wendover had the great privilege of being visited by Aylesbury Fire & Rescue Service on the 7th November. The team arrived in their fire engine and the children couldn’t believe their eyes! They greeted the firefighters by singing their favourite fire engine song.
The firefighters joined us in the nursery and asked the children several questions about what they knew about fire safety. The firefighters then mentioned some dangers, with it recently being Halloween and Bonfire night, which coincided with our topics we have covered recently and they taught the children what they should do in an emergency – call 999!
The children were able to inform the firefighters that we have smoke alarms to help notify us of a fire. We then all had a practical lesson of STOP, DROP & ROLL if we were ever on fire – the children were very good at this!
The children had then had the great pleasure of spraying the fire hose and sitting inside the fire engine. We are very proud of our children completing their fire safety lesson and being the youngest group the fire team had visited.
We would like to say a big thank you to the Blue Watch from Aylesbury Fire & Rescue Service.
