Programme for Members’ Children: Visit to the Fire and Ambulance Services Education Centre cum Museum

On 19 August, around 40 members and their children attended a guided visit organised by the Member Benefit Committee to the Fire and Ambulance Services Education Centre cum Museum located at the Fire and Ambulance Services Academy at Tseung Kwan O. Both tour guides were retired firemen, who shared their real life experiences with the participants. Members had the opportunity to see some of the oldest fire-fighting equipment that was once used.

Participants also had the chance to tour the Academy and learn about their latest training facilities. The tour guides also explained the evolution of the firemen uniforms and equipment at the “Uniform and Equipment Exhibition Area”. The visit concluded with a demonstration on the use of fire extinguisher and fire hose reel.
