Our trip to the Fire Station


Mrs. Comer’s class were very lucky this week to visit Athenry Fire Station. We were welcomed and shown around by Fireman Enda Somers and Fireman Liam O’Brien. Everyone got sprayed by the hose and also got to spray the hose…even teacher! It was great fun. They showed us where they have their lunch and also where they keep their equipment. We tried on their helmets which were very heavy and Ruby Somers got to wear her grandad’s helmet as he used to be a fireman there. We explored the truck and got to put on the mask if we wanted to. They turned on the sirens for us..they were very loud! We were so good that we got a little treat at the end, so thank you! What a great experience, one we will remember forever!
