Fire Service Experience

Students from the academy spent a day at Keighley Fire Station on a special awareness day in early November.

The day was designed to offer the youngsters a better understanding of the fire service and highlight the issues faced by the fire service.  Students are to become ambassadors for positivity – sharing the safety messages with their peers.

The mixture of boys and girls from years 8 to 10 started the day with a tour of the station, the fire engines, appliances and equipment and completed a fire safety and awareness quiz. Students then got kitted out in protective clothing to take part in practical exercises using the hoses and equipment and trying a rescue scenario for themselves.

Academy Lead for Behaviour and Attendance, Pill Allen said of the day:  “The most memorable part of the day for the students was the rescue scenario.  Their engagement in the activity was amazing, they were a credit to UAK.  Students represented the community positively and their commitment to taking the message to others is commendable.  Everyone found the day very insightful and brought a deeper understanding and respect for the Fire and Rescue Service.”
