Sniff, beep, test!

Children from Durrington Infants School, part of Salisbury Plain Academies, learnt about fire safety recently.

The Year 2 children were visited by a Fire Safety Officer who gave them information on what to do if there is a fire as well as the importance of smoke alarms and testing them regularly. 

“It was great to have our Fire Safety Officer in to visit us once again,” said Year 2 teacher, Jodie Scott. “Each year they teach the children so much about fire safety and even I learn something that I didn’t know. It is really important that the children know how to react and what to do if they ever come across a fire. “

As well as learning lots of useful tips the children were able to try on some fire brigade uniform.

“I loved trying on the fire lady’s boots,” said 6 year old Eli.

Fellow Year 2 pupil, Lili, says she learnt a lot. “I now know that I need to test my smoke alarms at home once a week and we learnt a rhyme to help us remember – “Sniff, sniff, sniff... Beep, beep, beep. Test your smoke alarms once a week.”
