Fire Brigade to the rescue!
Oak Tree Tamworth Residents received a visit from the West Tamworth 508 Fire Brigade this week, but it was all for good reason!
Phillip Pearce and three fellow fireman attended the village to give residents a presentation on fire safety.
With most house fires typically starting in the kitchen, the fireman talked about strategies to avoid fire and what to do should a fire erupt. Residents were shown how to correctly use fire extinguishers and fire blankets and were informed the correct times to use the equipment, depending on the fire.
It was a very informative morning and each resident received a fire blanket of their own as a gift.
