Shepparton Fire Brigade welcomed 11 children aged between two and three to the station. Leading firefighter Luke Waterson said it was good to teach children about fire safety.
‘‘We teach the importance of simple rules as far as ‘stop, drop and roll’ and how to get down low and go, go, go in smoky environments,’’ he said.
‘‘We’ve spoken about calling triple zero and making sure that their parents have got a home safety fire plan.’’
Children got to dress up as firefighters, listen to the siren and watch the Shepparton pumper in action.
Arthur Dickmann Children’s Centre service leader Jenni Gibson said it was a good day out for the children.
‘‘The children have been playing with emergency vehicles and toys within their program, so we’ve extended on their learning and come to see the fire trucks,’’ she said.
Every picture tells a story and every treasured object has a memory — this is the message behind a call to find Shepparton memorabilia for display.
