FIRE safety was the les­son for Gayn­dah’s Year 1 stu­dents last Fri­day.

Queens­land Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice of­fi­cers vis­ited Gayn­dah State School and St Joseph’s Catholic Pri­mary School to out­line fire ed­u­ca­tion.

The kids were ex­cited as they sat in a fire truck and took turns us­ing the fire hose, un­der the su­per­vi­sion of Gayn­dah fire­fight­ers Leighton Kreis and Michael Ung.

Area con­troller Adam Gwin said the chil­dren were taught about safe and un­safe fires, di­alling 000, fire safety plans in the home and smoke alarms.

“The pro­gram was de­signed to talk about fire aware­ness and fire safety for Year 1 stu­dents,” he said.

Fire Ed­u­ca­tion is a long run­ning in­ter­ac­tive School Com­mu­nity Safety Pro­gram for chil­dren in their early years of learn­ing.
