Children from Surfleet Primary School welcomed a fire crew from Spalding to learn more about people who look after them and the community.
Firefighters Darren Burchnall, Craig Newstead, Louisa Thornton and Andy Wand gave Reception and Year One pupils a guided tour of a fire engine, showing them how a water hose, siren, blue lights and the vehicle itself all worked.
There was also time for a question and answer session in class where Darren asked the youngsters: “What would you do if you saw a fire?”
Teacher Anett Baxter said: “The children were so engaged in what was going on and it’s something they will remember forever.
“We’re just so lucky to have something like this, hands-on experience to see real things, rather than trying to imagine it in a classroom.”
