Rentweinsdorf – fire department commander florian rengstl and firefighter tobias diringer visited the elementary schools in rentweinsdorf. First, as the school reported after the visit, the rentweinsdorf firefighters showed the children what a firefighter has to wear as equipment. The children were allowed to hold the trousers, jacket, helmet, belt, firefighter boots and even the respirator mask in their hands. In the process, they realized that the equipment was very heavy. "And in this heavy equipment, the firefighters have to do their job" explained teacher petra haubner.
Fire department commander rengstl calmly and patiently explained to the children how to behave in the event of a fire.
Afterwards, the children were allowed to go out with the firemen to the two fire engines.
" That was a great thing!", heibt it from the school. The two firefighters showed the children the items that a fire truck has to have in order to be ready for all operations.
The children were allowed to touch some of the equipment themselves. At the end, the siren was switched on and each child was allowed to sit in the fire truck.If only school days were more often this exciting!
