Visit to the local fire station

As part of our PSHE curriculum at FreshSteps, we value our student's learning about safety. We believe successful fire prevention starts at early ages. 
In addition to our regular fire drills to ensure pupils and staff  have a clear understanding of evacuation procedures we also build an understanding of what to do to stay safe and reduce the risk of fires starting, which they can share with their family. They also look at how to make an escape plan and an emergency call if there is a fire.
During our visit pupils had the opportunity to look around the fire station and a fire engine, they also had the opportunity to use a fire hose and tried a firefighter uniform.
