Sidmouth fire crew helps pupils learn fire safety
Pupils at Sidmouth Primary School visited Sidmouth Fire Station as part of its School Safety Week.
Throughout last week, students learnt about how to stay safe in their home, online, while on the beach and near the road.
Firefighters welcomed a group of children to the fire station last Friday. They offered safety advice and then demonstrated how to put out a chip pan fire.
The firemen also visited the infant sites with a fire engine. The children were shown how to use the hose pipes and put on safety equipment, and allowed to sit in the fire engine.
Parents were invited to take part in safety week by attending workshops about online safety.
