This week, our Foundation students were fortunate to have the EPPING CFA team on site in between duty calls for their next emergency deployments. Students welcomed the team and their firetruck on site with much excitement.
The students were also very interested in the fire truck parked safely inside our staff carpark and were shown the various rescue equipment it carries. The enthusiasm was palpable when the firefighters opened their hose and students were allowed to operate the water canon in turns.
They also learnt about the firefighters' heavy safety gear and equipment and learnt about the risk of house fires, and practised an escape, so they will know what to do if they are ever caught in a fire: "Get Down Low and Go, Go, Go!" while also alerting parents and family members by calling out "FIRE!!!"
Thank you to the fantastic team at Epping CFA for making time to visit our youngest students during your busy schedule. We look forward to welcoming you to the College again in the future.
