Firefighters in St Neots welcomed hundreds of school children to their station for a week of safety talks.
Almost 600 children, aged between nine and 10, came through the doors during the service’s Safety Zone Challenge to learn about how to stay safe in their homes and outdoors.
The Year 5 students listened to talks on water safety, smoke alarms and how to safely evacuate a building during a fire, as well as road safety.
Watch commander, Jon-Paul Jones, said: “We were delighted to host Safety Zone again and hope children had fun and will stay safer because of it.”
The youngsters also learnt about cyber bullying, first aid, animal husbandry and level crossing and railway safety.
