Firefighters from Ashfield Fire Station stopped by Murray House, bringing their fire truck and talking to the kids about fire safety and the course of action should there ever be a fire in their house.

Firefighters from Ashfield Fire Station stopped by Murray House, bringing their fire truck and talking to the kids about fire safety and the course of action should there ever be a fire in their house.

One of the toddlers shouted out, “we need to call zero, zero, zero!” Ian the firefighter said "That is correct!" He told the children that the operator on the phone will give them three options: ambulance, police, or fire station.

The children also practiced to roll on the ground if their clothes caught on fire.
.
Another important piece of information is to get away from the smoke by “getting down low and go…go…go…!” They followed firefighter Mitchell and crawled towards the door by getting down low to avoid the smoke.

Afterwards, we all had a turn to go up on the fire truck and sit on the special seat used by the firefighters to prep themselves before going into a burning building. We saw the oxygen tank strapped and ready to be taken out from the truck, colourful buttons that control the jet pump and the siren.The children were also invited to turn the hose on! It was a great experience enjoyed by all.

We take great pride in teaching the children about safety in all types of situations that they may find themselves in. It is never too young to teach your children about fire safety.
