This morning 10s visited Spennymoor Community Fire Station as part of their careers exploration learning. The Red Watch team at the station were kind enough to show us around, let us see the equipment they used and answered all career related questions we wanted to ask. Pupils learnt about the skills they would need to become firefighters and the types of qualities that would be beneficial. We got to ask about the most exciting jobs the crew had attended, as well as the most dangerous and most rewarding. We also learnt about the other roles the crew take on and were surprised it wasn’t just about firefighting but educating, rescuing, training, learning and using skills from many academic subjects in real life situations, It was lovely to see a team so passionate about their roles and inspiring our young people. A great day was had by all! Take a look at the exciting things we got up to!
