Youngsters wondering what life as a firefighter is like needed to look no further than St Albans fire station last week.
Children from schools across the district took part in the Crucial Crew active training sessions at the London Road site on Tuesday, March 18.
The training session was one of 19 run by the district’s community safety partnership for over 1,000 children over two weeks.
They learnt about hazards in the Danger Den, which was a room mocked up as a home, and also learnt about health and wellbeing.
Year Five and Six pupils were educated on the dangers of making hoax calls to emergency services and about electrical, road, fire, water and online safety.
