A US air base’s fire crew visited a nearby primary school last week to show pupils how they do their job.
Pupils at West Row Primary School were treated to a look at an RAF Mildenhall fire truck last Thursday and learned the importance of fire safety.
Geraldine Ciantar, headteacher, said the visit was a memorable way for pupils to learn about a firefighter’s daily work.
“The children had a chance to climb aboard and spray the hose which was all great fun, but it’s also something they won’t forget because it was so enjoyable,” she said.
The visit was organised by RAF Alconbury watch manager, Ken Cross.
He was joined by firefighters and airmen from RAF Mildenhall as part of the base’s ongoing community relations work.
