Doreen Fire Brigade members were invited to attend Laurimar Primary School's Safety Day on Thursday 26 October.

Starting at 9am, the crew of four on board Doreen's pumper tanker presented some of the features and equipment of the truck to some very interested and well-behaved children.

The children from Prep to Grade 3 and their teachers had the opportunity to learn about the brigade, pagers, breathing apparatus, pumps and other equipment.

Key messages about smoke alarms, calling Triple Zero (000) in an emergency, fire plans, and what to do in case of a fire were attentively listened to by the students and teachers.

Question time at the end of each session was interesting from the brigade's perspective. Questions included: 

  • “What about my fish if there was a fire in my house?”
  • “What would happen if the fire truck had a flat tyre or battery?
  • “How heavy is the truck?”

Everyone was asked if they has a working smoke alarm in their house and an emergency plan.

Some students may now ask questions of their parents about fire safety.

At the end of the session the crew of the pumper tanker was made to feel most welcome at a morning tea with the school Principal Jason McBean thanking the brigade for the time and commitment to the School's Safety Day Program over many years.

thyis great initiative is rewarding for teh brigade and the students.

We look forward to attending next year.
