Fire drill......

In our homes we have fire extinguishers. Once a year we let them check and renew the contents in it. Simon had a good idea, let us use this time to teach all the staff how to use them, we need them to be renewed anyway. So the Fire man from the Police department was invited and yesterday he gave all the staff instructions. 
Here they got instructions, how to carry the extinguisher and the differences between them.
The Police officer was showing them how to break the seal and to open them...... the first one who opened, the whole group ran away, they really were scared of the noise... Auntie Grace, our kitchen lady, ran all the way to the kitchen and had to be persuaded to come out.......
Emma's work was to make the fire......
The fire was on and aunti Barbara was coming into action......
The action was really good, she extinguished the fire in no time!!
Here is Winnie busy, we used all the bottles to give people a chance to do it, but we do hope that we never have to do it in real...
Auntie Mary, our cleaning lady, was also trying,  
We had a lot of fun, but it was very good to do this together, earlier this week we had a trainings day with the staff about the Children rights. It is important that our staff is knowing these things and understands that children do have rights and do need care and love.
