Fire Safety

We invited the Fire Service to join us for this week's programme. They arrive - unfortunately minus the fire engine! The gearbox was in for repairs and the fire engines from other stations were busy with the refugees! What a let down for our cubs!

Nevertheless, Thami, gave them a brilliant talk on fire safety. They all now know the "ins and outs" about what to do should a fire break out in the house.

Listening very carefully!

After the long sit, we showed the cubs how to "stop, drop and roll" - which got them a bit active.

We then played "Fireball" with them - a quick and easy game.
Divide the pack into 2 - benches were put in the middle to divide the two teams. A huge fireball (plastic ball) is then thrown into the opponents area hoping to touch one of the cubs. If one of them is touched they must stand on the bench at the back. The game continues untill all cubs are standing on the respective benches.
Dodging the fireball!

We showed them all how to make a fire - safely!

... and we then went into Instruction. Here the Leaping Wolves are doing "Getting Lost" Both correct and incorrect statements were placed under cups. Cubs got a turn each to choose a cup, read the statement and decide whether it is true or false.
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
