Fire Brigade Visit

This month Upper Moutere Fire Brigade came to visit Country Kids.

Ian, Susan and Andy discussed smoke alarms and read us a story about FireWise Safety. We learned “Get down, get out, stay out.”

Have you checked your smoke alarm battery recently?

The tamariki crawled under the smoke blanket, shouting “fire, fire” then ran to their place of safety.  Do you have a safe place to run to in an emergency?  Country Kids children know to run to our Assembly point at the boundary fence.

Later we all went outside and had a turn to run the hose and explore the firetruck.

Thank you so much to the Upper Moutere firefighters for their visit and showing that firefighters are our friends
