On Friday 17th January 2014, the Science Department at Redcar Academy hosted a visit from Blue Watch from Redcar Fire Station for two Year 7 classes. There was a demonstration of a chip pan fire, with advice on how to tackle this type of fire both correctly and incorrectly. Below shows what happens when you put water on a chip pan fire.
Two members of blue watch highlighted the hazards of gas ignition by demonstrating a controlled ignition of methane gas.
Finally the Year 7’s were educated about fire safety in the home. They were taught about what to do in the event of discovering a fire and if they were trapped in a fire, including what to do when the smoke alarm sounds, how to raise the alarm and how to minimise the risk of fire in their home.
