Year 5's exciting fire safety day with Blue Watch!

Year 5s exciting fire safety day with Blue Watch!

On Tuesday 14th May, Year 5 had a special visit from Blue Watch of Ely Fire Station. Four firefighters gave an engaging talk about home fire safety. The students watched a video demonstrating how quickly a fire can start and spread, emphasising the critical message to "get out and stay out" in a fire emergency.

The girls learned the importance of knowing their address and postcode in case they ever need to call 999. 

A special thanks to Nia of 5J, who demonstrated the "stop, drop, and roll" technique to extinguish flames if clothing catches fire.

The firefighters also educated the students on the dangers of overloading power adaptors and daisy-chaining them. They advised against using multi-plug block adaptors due to safety concerns.

Additionally, the importance of smoke detectors was highlighted, with Blue Watch recommending weekly checks ("Test on Tuesdays!") and ensuring that there is a smoke detector on every floor of the house.

A big thank you to Blue Watch for their visit and valuable lessons!
