RED Watch firefighters at Bolton Central Fire Station
recently had a visit from children at a local primary
Last Thursday afternoon, October 11, a group of pupils with
special educational needs from Clarendon Primary School called into
the fire station on Moor Lane to see the firefighters.
Crew Manager Mick Hodson from Red Watch said: "We arranged for a
small group of children from the school to visit the fire station
so we could give them some fire safety advice.
"The children arrived at around dinner time when we gave them a
tour of the fire station and engines - and let them have a squirt
of the hose.
"A bit later we gave them a presentation on 'Francis the
Firefly' - which covers fire safety in the home and what they
should do if they discover a fire.
"We also did a chip pan demonstration showing just how quickly a
fire can develop.
"An enjoyable afternoon was had by Red Watch, the children and
