Fire Safety night

27 November 2015

The Cubs had a great Bonfire night out at Rothwell Park on the 5th of November so we continued the fire theme through to this week but focussed on safety.

How many families already have a practised fire escape plan at home?

We have learned that by drawing a plan of our homes we are able to learn where the escape routes are, how we could all get out safely and that it doesn’t take long to work out but can and will save lives.

All Cubs have brought home their plan to put into practise with the whole family and to test out their different ideas of escape routes.

We hope you will never need to use this plan and that it was all just a fun exercise to raise awareness of fire safety but a few moments spent trying this out will not only earn a credit for a badge but will equip the Cubs to better deal with the situation should it ever arise.

The rest of the evening was given over to playing games, we played fireman’s ladders and took part in a team game, getting a ball from one end of the six to the other, and back again, using only our chins! I am sure many parents will remember playing this game themselves at some point.

Time ran away with us again and it was time to fall back into horseshoe ready to invest Tanisha into the Carlton Cub’s family. A very proud Tanisha said her promise in front of everyone, received her badges and a loud round of applause.

Lots of badges were awarded tonight, so many in fact, that we had to put them into envelopes to ensure they got home!

Nighthawk, our newest leader chose Imogen as Cub of the week!

Stay safe, have a great week and we will see you next Thursday for our Countryside night.
