YOUNGSTERS from St Andrew’s CE School in Evesham have been finding out more about the fire service with the help of some special visitors.

Firefighters Kyle Annis and Alex Atkins from Evesham Fire Station addressed the whole school in assembly, talking about their roles and giving the children some safety advice.

The pupils then asked them questions and Kyle explained to them how important smoke alarms were, telling them if there was a fire they needed to tell an adult, get out of the house, ring 999 and stay out of the house.

Abi asked if women could be firefighters and was tole Evesham already had three female firefighters while Joseph wanted to know if they attended water rescues as well.

After the assembly, Kyle and Alex spent time in year one explaining their jobs further, how fires could start, and how the youngsters could keep safe at home and at school.

A school spokesperson said: “The children really learnt a lot from the visit and Kyle even set year one some homework.

“The children have to learn their own address, so if there is ever an emergency, they know where they live.

“The children’s favourite part was trying on Kyle and Alex’s fire helmets.

“We want to say a big ‘thank you’ to both Kyle and Alex for coming into school.”
