This past week the children at Die Sterreweg have been looking at the various different careers and career options. One of the careers being a Fireman / Fire Woman.
Everyone at Die Sterreweg was overjoyed when our local fire department came to visit the school and offer insight into the life of being an active fire fighter.
Under the watchful eye of the efficient fire personnel, the children were allowed to perform some very important fire fighting tasks!
Each child was permitted to hold the hose and operate the “branch” – (the branch is the metal fitting on the front of the hose that is used to regulate the water flow).
Another very important task is communication and knowing how to operate the radio is critical when out in the field and needing to communicate with your fellow fire fighters.
