After break on recently Ms Forde and Ms Foley’s 3rd Classes went to the 'Breakfast Room' and two firemen from the Fire Station up near Clonard visited and taught us different ways about how to be safe around fire. After that, they showed us cards that had dangerous things on them. One had cigarettes on it and asked us if anyone`s parents smoked and most people put their hands up. If a cigarette is lit, the best way to get rid of it is to put it in the fire.

After that they gave loads more tips for general safety at home.....

  • Candles – They said to never leave a lighting candle on when an adult isn't watching
  • Plugs –leave everything plugged in except for the fridge – we saw some plugs that had over-heated and went on fire.
  • Frankie false -never make a false call about a fire because it`s dangerous and you could get arrested.
  • 999 or 112 – numbers you need to ring if there is an emergency at your house, at your school or anywhere else.
  • Pan – don’t leave a hot pan where children can get it – always have someone older than you/ parents watch it.
  • Deep fat fryer – if water gets in contact, it will go on fire- be careful around them!-always have a parent around.
  • Lighters / matches  - up high and only adults can use them-kids can burn themselves or could get some fire on them.
  • Smoke alarms – should check yours and clean it by putting the hover up to it. If you don’t have one, you can call the fire station or the council and they can come and put one in for you.
  • Plan Man – Like in school, we should have a plan at home just in case there is a fire anywhere.

Then they showed us their yellow helmet and allowed some of us wear one. Ms. Forde took pictures with us wearing it and sent them to our parents. Then, people asked the firemen questions about fire, like how much minutes would it take for a fire to spread or other things.
