Firemen get a soaking from West Wight kids

1 min read

Freshwater firemen got more than they bargained for when they visited West Wight Nursery in Totland on Monday 29th March

It was the crew’s first community engagement event for a year and children were able to play with the fire hoses resulting in some wet firefighters.
A spokesman said: “We showed the children the fire engine and allowed them to squirt a ‘few’ drops of water!

“We made sure there was a strict sanitise of the fire engine and equipment, minimal crew and PPE before and after the session.
“We were so pleased to be able to bring a bit of normality and fun to the nursery with our first community event for a year. The happy faces say it all. Even though restrictions are easing today please stay safe out there.”
