Curious residents of Langley Haven Dementia Care Home were given a demonstration of the modern technology used by firefighters yesterday (Tuesday).

A group from the care home in Ramblers Lane visited Slough Fire Station in Tuns Lane after they requested a visit following a discussion about how the fire service and the equipment it uses has developed over the years.

They were given the opportunity to speak to firefighters and given a tour of a fire engine.

Fire crews also demonstrated how they rescue people from burning buildings.

Roxana Chirita, activities co-ordinator at the home, said: “Our residents were really impressed with the firefighters.

“It was a really positive experience for them.

“We really enjoy taking residents out as much as possible and ensuring they know as much as possible about the modern world.”
