Fire Safety Officers visited Elphinstone Primary yesterday and talked to Nursery, P1-7 in our assembly about Fire Safety. Using the website www.firescotland.gov.uk, the pupils were taken through an interactive ‘house’ to spot fire hazards in every room.
The children learned about the various dangers and the ways in which fires can start. We discussed the importance of smoke detectors and that they save many lives each year. The Firemen talked us through different fire scenarios in the house and the children had to work out the best escape route for each incident. It was a very informative assembly and the pupils were clearly interested and asked the firemen lots of their questions.
