Cubs visit local Fire Station Nov 2016

On 28 November 2016, Cubs were treated to a unique insight of an operational fire station at Gordon. This is our group’s closest fire station which is also an emergency rescue unit. As part of the Scouting movement, Cubs also need to appreciate how aspects of their community works, and how these fire fighters serve their community not only by helping to put out fires and performing rescues, but also community education. Cubs learnt to dial 000 in an emergency rather than 911 if you live in America, how a fire station operates, and what all the equipment on a fire truck/pump does. Thank you Nick, Andrew and the rest of the team for accommodating us! And awesome that every Cub was in full uniform and scarves!
