Dean Field School Junior Wardens at Illingworth Fire Station

Our firefighters have one of the most respected jobs within the community: responding to incidents, preventing them from happening and protecting people and property in West Yorkshire. Junior Wardens from Dean Field Primary School Ovenden were given the opportunity to visit Illingworth Fire Station to  find out more about what they do, how they promotion opportunities and technical areas they specialise within the daily role of a Firefighter

The Fire Fighters gave the Junior Wardens a fantastic and very informative tour of the Illingworth Station , explaining some of the jobs the fire fighters are called out to and even let them try on some of the fire fighters protective clothing and use the fire hose of the engine ,they even gave a call out for the Junior Wardens with the blues and twos
