Year 1 had a great afternoon today when Brian, one of Gateshead’s fire fighters visited our classroom.
He told us all about how dangerous lighters and matches are and how we should tell our grown-ups to keep them in a high cupboard.
Brian also told us all about the uniform that a fire fighter wears to keep them safe when they are tackling fires.
Brian also asked if we had smoke alarms in our homes. He told us we need to check that they are working.
Did you know that the fire station can give FREE smoke alarms to any family who needs them.
The last thing that Brian taught us was that if we ever have a fire we need to get out the house, stay out the house and get the fire brigade out.
