We were very lucky to have a visit from a firefighter, Richard Gee, on Wednesday. We told him all about our topic The Great Fire Of London and he was very impressed with our knowledge. We talked about the differences between fires and fire fighting now and back in 1666.
He told us about his job and the different aspects of being a firefighter such as rescuing people and animals as well as tackling fires. He told us about the different types of uniform he has for different purposes and he even let us try on some of his! We all learnt the name of a fire hydrant and what it's purpose is.
Richard talked about being safe in our own houses and made sure we all know what to do if there is a fire. We talked about the importance of knowing our address in case we had to call the emergency services.
