St Theresa School Fire Demonstration – May 2012

May 6, 2012 in Fire

On Saturday 5th May, the Emergency Fire and Rescue Unit (E.F.R.U.) gave another fire safety demonstration, this time at St. Theresa school, Mriehel.

Despite coinciding with the annual Puttinu Football Marathon, where EFRU provide first aid and fire safety, four volunteers still managed to spare time to treat children and parents to a demonstration about the work of a firefighter, the equipment in a fire engine, and basic fire safety in the home. They were also reminded the emergency number 112.

Children had the opportunity to climb into the fire engine, wear a helmet and also had their picture taken with some equipment including a breathing apparatus set. Their questions about fire fighting and volunteering were also answered.
