Chernobyl Children Visit Redditch Fire Station

in News

The visit has been organised by Chernobyl Children’s Life Line, a charity that raises funds to bring children from Belarus to the UK for a month, allowing them to recuperate from the contaminated environment they live in following the explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986.

The visit to Redditch Fire Station on Wednesday 10 April is one of many activities organised for the children during their stay in the UK, and will include a chance to take a closer look at the fire engines and other equipment used by the crews as well as a short fire safety presentation.

Station Commander Phil Berry said: “This will be the third time that a group from Chernobyl Children’s Life Line has visited the fire station. It’s always a pleasure to support the charity in this way and to witness the children’s interest in everything they are shown.”
