Aviation Education Programme – Fire and Rescue

We had a great AEP session this week which included a very informative trip to the Fire Station here at Blackbushe.  The boys were shown around the fire trucks and equipment and had a look at the protective clothing that the fire fighters have to put on in record time!  The session ended in the (warmer!) classroom with some activities that demonstrated which fire extinguisher should be used on which type of fire. The session finished with the boys having a look at the emergency procedures on a commercial aeroplane, including the brace position.  Let's hope it never has to be put into practice!!  A big thank you to the Blackbushe Fire Crew.
