CHILDREN are learning how to fight fires using specialist equipment - ut is all being done under the watchful eyes of the Midhurst fire and rescue crew.

Pupils from Brookham School in Liphook spent the day at the Midhurst station.

Firefighter Mark Purves said: “We discussed with the children what firefighters do, the dangers and what to do should they 
find a fire.

“The favourite part for most children though, is getting to spray water from the hose!

“We were really impressed with how much they already knew.

“We also looked at the protective clothing, including breathing apparatus and how they protect us.

“They looked around the appliances at the equipment we carry and asked lots of inquisitive questions.”

The Big Bears Nursery Class from Brookham School thoroughly enjoyed their trip, with the chance to play on the fire engine, try the uniform on for size and look through the infra-red camera.

Brookham School would like to give a huge thank you to the firefighters for providing such a fun and educational day.
