Pupils at Robsack Wood Primary Academy school has been awarded a certificate of participation for taking part in the East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service Community Fire Safety Education Programme.
Years two and five were treated to an afternoon of learning how to stay safe during a fire, making an exit plan of what to do if a fire breaks out and what other tasks the fire service do.
A spokesman for the school said the pupils aged six to 10 thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
One girl said she learned that the fire service protect everyone ‘including those in cars and pedestrians’. Another said: “It was a pleasure to have the fire service in, as we learned so much about fire safety, road safety, as well as what to do if a fire begins.” Another pupil added: “The smoke alarms in my house have never been checked so much since the fire service came in and informed us to check them regularly. I never knew what the road signs meant, but now I know what all of them mean, which will then keep me safe.
And one boy said: “Ever since the fire service came in, my life has been a whole lot safer.”
