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.
