YOUNGSTERS at Busy Day Nursery in Birchwood tried on fire kit and had a go at squirting water from a hose reel during a visit from crews to mark ‘Child safety week’.

Children were shown around the fire engine and given a safety activity book to complete at the nursery before the crew from Birchwood Fire Station left.

Firefighter Warren Hansford, from Birchwood, said: “We need to do everything we can to prevent accidents involving children occurring so I would encourage everyone to take the time to have a look on our website and follow vital safety advice to keep children safe.”
