Year 2 become Firefighters for the Day!

We visited Sunderland Fire Station and learnt about how fire is made, how to prevent it and how the Fire and Rescue Service help to keep us safe. We tried on some of the protective clothes and equipment the firefighters use and even got to go inside the fire engine. We were so excited when Firefighter Chris let us squirt the water from the hose! We watched an alarm test and saw a firefighter slide down the pole.
