Fire Safety Badge on target for Cubs

Tarporley Fire Station had a visit from 1st Tarporley (Arderne) Cub group recently after they went along as part of their fire safety badge.

The young people learnt about what they should do in the event of a fire from on-call Firefighter Paul Stafford, who spoke to the group about fire safety before giving them a tour of the fire station.

Paul also showed the young people around the fire engine and they looked at some of the equipment the crew used before the group finally the got to squirt water from the hoses. He said: “The group had a great time at the fire station and we were able to give them some vital safety information to help them get their fire safety badge, but also to help keep them safe at home.”

The group all went away with knowledge of fire safety and will no doubt get their badges presented shortly.

Akela David Goodier attended with the cubs. He said: “Our cubs had a great time at the fire station and learnt lots of interesting fire safety facts and information to help them get their badges. Hopefully they will go home and pass this on to their families and friends to help keep them safe too. The best bit of the evening for the pack was definitely squirting water from the hose pipe which was great fun.”
