Hi Parents / Guardians,
The fire fighters from Hitchin Fire Station visited our school recently and we had such a great time!
We saw the fire engine and the fire fighters’ uniform, but most importantly we were asked to check that we had smoke alarms in our houses (1 per floor in the hallway and landing and fitted correctly to the ceiling). We were also asked to check that the alarms were working correctly (they should be tested once a week).
The fire fighters said that if we haven’t got sufficient smoke alarms, or would just like more fire safety advice, including making a fire escape plan, we should call Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue’s Public Enquiry line on 0300 1234 046 or direct to the station 01462 666800 to ask for a Home Fire Safety Check visit.
They’ll ring us a week or two later to arrange a convenient time to visit – it only takes about 20 minutes to complete and what’s more, it’s absolutely free!!
From the pupils
We look forward to hearing from you and please mention your school visit when you call.
