Extinguisher training for Scouts

Last week the Gisborne Scouts and Cubs underwent training in the use of fire extinguishers. Firefighters explained why we have different types of extinguishers and how to use them correctly depending on what type of fire they are extinguishing. 

The night started off with a half hour theory session, then out side to the training area where the Scouts got to show us what they had learnt.

In the past we have done simalar sessions for school students and even teachers have had training in this area.
