Fire lessons

We had a fire expert at the office today to teach lessons on fire fighting. He took some members of staff through the process of fighting a fire with the pressured fire extinguisher. It was interesting to see my colleagues struggle with the can as they tried to point the nozzle at the raging fire all the time trying to avoid being singed.

You can be sure that there was a lot of laughter and back slapping.

How quick we are to judge. When I saw the thumbnail I thought you had photographed a riot. Very glad it wasn't.

Yes when I worked in an office we had to have " fire training " - brings back memories ..

Always have the correct extinguisher handy - certain ones for electrical fires , others for chemical fires and so on.

We always had to sit through a film as well .
