STUDENTS of Saint Vincent Primary School visited the Suva Fire Station for the first time on Tuesday.

School fire safety co-ordinator and teacher James Royneel said the visit was an important one for the students.

"This was very important for our children as they have now learnt important aspect of fire prevention, and more importantly what to do when the house is on fire," Mr Royneel said.

"Some of the students have come from different communities in Tailevu and the fire safety tips, which the students have learnt, will further create fire safety awareness in our children and also they will be advocates of fire safety in their respective community."

"It is important for children to learn fire safety," National Fire Authority chief executive officer John O'Connor said.
