Guides learn to fight fire

Bray People - - NEWS -

MORE THAN 20 girl guides got the chance to have a tour of Bray's fire sta­tion at the week­end, spend­ing around an hour car­ry­ing out a full in­spec­tion of the sta­tion fa­cil­i­ties.

Dad Mal­colm Pert, who or­gan­ised the trip, said that they were treated to a tour of the mu­seum and the sta­tion be­fore look­ing at an en­gine and the equip­ment, in­clud­ing lights and sirens and a go at the fire hose.

The fire­men on site opened the floor up to ques­tions, of which there were many, from the girls aged eight to 14 years old.

‘We had a won­der­ful time,' said Mal­colm. ‘ The hour went by in the blink of an eye.'

The guides meet in St Kil­ian's Sports Hall ev­ery Tues­day evening at 7.30 p.m. Any­one is wel­come to pop in and see what it's all about. How­ever, to ex­pand the num­bers, more lead­ers would be re­quired to par­tic­i­pate.
