Ok, maybe not fighting fires as such but we did extinguish some flames at work today. It was the Fire Warden training day and plenty of us managed to get ourselves trained as fire wardens as a result. A few hours of theory and then it was outside for the exciting bit – putting out some fires!
Nothing too dramatic, but it’s still really satisfying to fire an extinguisher at the flames and stand back, knowing you’ve won that particular battle with the elements! Fingers crossed that we never have to use our training in a real situation but it’s good to know that we are at least well trained.
