Portree Family First Mother and Baby Group visit a fire station

The Portree Family First Mother and baby group celebrated ‘Child Accident Prevention Trust’ (CAPT) Child safety week with a visit to the local Fire Station on Wed 8th June. Here’s CALA Family First Co-ordinator Shirley to explain more:

Great fun had by all. We had a tour of the fire station and tried on the very heavy helmets. We were then able to sit and drive the engine, have fun with sirens and lights before getting to play with the hose.fire-engine-group-photo

Mums, dads, babies and toddlers all had a great morning in the sunshine and have all asked for another trip next year. Thank you to our kind firemen for making it such fun, and they offered all parents a free home safety check as part of our visit. ‘
