Today we were lucky to have four firefighters from the West Belconnen Emergency Services visit kindergarten. We met fire fighter Damian (Xavier's Dad), Chris, Kate and Chris. It was such an informative and interactive session about fire safety. We learnt all about the difference between good and bad fires. The children got to practise the action of stop, drop and roll if their clothes were ever to catch fire and how to get down low and go, go, go.
The firefighters taught us the importance of having smoke dectectors in our home and knowing our home address. We can call the emergency number '000' if there was ever a fire at our home.
We know that fire fighters are our friends that help keep us safe. They wear special protective clothing and a mask to keep themselves safe from fire. Miss Mooney and Miss Whitford got to dress up in all the special gear!
The fire fighters even gave us 2 homework holiday jobs! We need to learn our home address if we don't know it yet and check if we have smoke detectors in our own homes too.
