Mafeking Scouts visited Humberside Fire & Rescue Service Brough station last Wednesday evening as part of the fire safety activity badge. As well as having lots of fun learning how to use the fire hoses, there was the serious side learning about #firesafety in the home.
We now all know about fitting and testing smoke alarms, what to do if there’s a fire in the home, stop drop and role for if your clothes are alight and dangers in the house. Hopefully each scout has gone home and talked through the learnings with their parents and developed their own family plans – another requirement for the badge. #skillsforlife
Many thanks to FireFighters Ian, Dean and Trevor for giving up their free time to show us around the station, the fire engines and equipment as well as the Incident Command Unit.
