Preventing Fires


Prevention is, undoubtedly, better than cure, and firemen all over New Zealand were conveying this message to business-houses, householders and children during the fire prevention week recently. We followed a Nelson Fire Brigade team out to Clifton Terrace School where the children were given a talk and shown a fire engine and how a small fire is put out. Mark Anderson and Paul Bonnington (top) demonstrate what they had been taught. Inset top are honorary firemen, Donald Heyward (top) and Allison Moffatt (bottom).
