Bright sparks showed they knew how to prevent and escape fire when firefighters visited their school.

Borehamwood Fire Station’s White Watch visited Fair Field Junior School in Radlett to deliver its Schools Programme And Resource Kit (SPARK) programme.

Over two days, more than 60 children learned how to call in an emergency, the dangers of hoax calls, safety in the home, the importance of a smoke alarm, escape plan, and ‘stop drop and roll’.

Watch Commander Bob Williams was impressed by the active part each child took in the sessions, by asking “a bundle of questions”.

He said: “An extremely enjoyable and educational couple of days were enjoyed by both children and firefighters.

This is just one of the many youth engagement activities carried out by Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service.”
