Fires Are Rare When Care Is There!學一分消防知識，多十分平安保障
Wagor International School - Elementary School (Xitun Campus) attaches great importance to life skills. To integrate with the Grade 5 reading story “ Forest on Fire”, the Student Affairs Department invited the Taichung City Government Fire Bureau, Shuinan team, to the school to introduce fire truck equipment and share their knowledge on May 6th. This event included how to operate a fire extinguisher and an indoor fire hydrant. After recent major public fire casualties occurred in Taiwan, focusing on strengthening personal safety and protecting your family in the event of a fire has become a priority.
Fire Truck Equipment and Firefighting Knowledge消防車設備與消防常識介紹
In addition to introducing fire truck, the use of firefighting equipment and fireproof clothing were also explained. This not only taught students about first safety tips, but also allowed students to actually experience wearing firefighting equipment and fireproof clothing.
Fire Extinguisher Operation滅火器操作
Giving students the opportunity to witness the actual operation of a fire extinguisher showed students how to use a fire extinguisher quickly and precisely to extinguish a fire and minimize damage and loss in the event of a fire.
Indoor Fire Hydrant Operation室內消防栓介紹操作
Indoor fire hydrants are well known, but few children have seen what they really look like. This event gave the children a glimpse of an actual indoor fire hydrant. It helped them to understand the indoor fire hydrant hose and how it works. They also witnessed the use of a fire hydrant in action.
This firefighting advocacy, which combined language learning and professional firefighters' explanations, also allowed children to experience the use of hydrants, extinguishers, fire protection clothing and other firefighting equipment. In the future, if similar incidents occur, the children of Wagor would be able to protect themselves in these dangerous situations.
