The Dousing At The End In No Way Waters Down The Day…

In my last post from our visit to the Kazerne Scheveningen,(Scheveningen Fire Station), Little Mr and two of his little neighbourhood friends have been enjoying a good look around at the exhibits and demonstrations.

Now on our way out there is one more thing to do on this ideal summer holiday Open Day: play with the fire hoses.

The fire station have some wooden frames in which there is a sort of target area, the frame is painted up to look like a house and the target area like the area of the house that is on fire.

When the child has hit the target area (fire) for long enough with the fire hose, the “fire” painting drops down and the target area becomes a black window, signifying that the fire has been extinguished. Off-duty firemen help the children to aim in the right place to hit the “fire” and of course the volume of water coming out of the fire hose has been greatly reduced so that the kids can hold on to it. There are a couple of kids dousing the “fires” before the three in our group wait, but lots of fun is had once they have a go and it’s a brilliant conclusion to an afternoon out.
