On Tuesday the 14th of July, three Fire fighters came to our school to talk to us about how we can stay safe around fires. We learnt lots of things!!!
We should always be with an adult around any fire. When blowing out candles always make sure your hair is tied back or out of the way. Stay away from the stove when mum or dad are cooking.
Fire fighter Mark showed us a smoke detector and we listened to the noise it makes if it goes off. It was really loud. Smoke detectors keep us safe, especially at night because our noses go to sleep too and we wouldn’t be able to smell smoke when we are asleep.
Fire fighter Paul showed us what to do if we needed to get out of our house if there was a fire. First we would
“CRAWL DOWN LOW and GO, GO, GOOOO! Then we would meet at our Safe Meeting Place. Our letterbox is a great place to meet.
Finally Fire fighter Christian dressed up in his full uniform. He sounded funny when he was breathing through his mask. He gave some of us high fives. It was fun!
Now we have homework to do with mum and dad.
1. How many smoke detectors are in our house. Do I know where they are?
2. Where is our safe meeting place in case of an emergency?
