On Wednesday the Aroha Syndicate had a visit from some of the firefighters from the Papatoetoe Fire Station.
Two firemen talked to us about keeping safe from fire. Then they showed us the equipment they need to keep them safe when they fight fires.
Some of us got to try on some of the clothes that firefighters wear. They were very heavy!
After this we went outiside and looked at the fire engine. We saw all the tools that fire fighters need that are kept in the lockers on the truck.
Then the bit we all loved… we got to spray the fire hose and try and hit a cone. It was so cool!
Lots of us in the Aroha Syndicate want to be fire fighters when we grow up!
