As a part of the theme ‘Our Neighbourhood’, children of Pallav are studying about ‘Community Helpers’. To explore this topic, they visited a Fire Station on 29th September, 2016. At the Fire Station, children got a chance to sit inside a fire tender and see various equipments that the fire men have to carry when they are called during emergencies. The firemen in their ‘Khakhi’ uniform spoke to the children about their role as a community helper through a brief yet interactive session. They also demonstrated how to douse fire using a water hose. This visit helped the children to appreciate the role of a fireman in the community and they also realized the importance of having a Fire Station within the vicinity of their homes.
