On 8 June 2010 the 1st Langford
Beavers spent their evening in the company of Fireman Tim and Fireman
Jim at Biggleswade fire station as they learnt about the dangers of
The Biggleswade retained fire crew entertained the Beavers with stories
of their work, photos of accidents and fires as well as a safety video
demonstrating how quickly a fire can spread.
Fireman Tim put on a full suit of fire fighting equipment and explained
the various bits of apparatus to the Beavers and the safety measures
they have to go through to ensure their safety when tackling a fire.
Volunteer Beaver Conor then gave a very good demonstration of ‘drop
and roll’, a technique to use if your clothes are on fire.
After a great and very informative hour it was time to head home and
tell parents all about the dangers !
