We visited Basildon Fire Station to have a behind the scenes tour and find out what the firefighters needed to do to get their job. We interviewed the firefighters and found out that they needed to have good results in Maths, English, Science, PE and Geography before they could apply for the job. We learned about how they source the water and run it through the fire engine to the hoses. We found out how the Fire Brigade get informed of the emergency in the control room. It is important to be able to read maps as Satnav is not fast or accurate enough.
