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.”
