Youngsters from the 89th Stenhousemuir Group visited the firefighters at Larbert.

They were given the opportunity to look around the station and were given fire safety instruction as well as being given a tour of the engines.

Fire safety badge work was on the agenda for 89th Stenhousemuir Cubs.

Every Scout deserves trained adult leaders according to an American training slogan.

When an adult agrees to become a leader they also agree to undergo training for their role.

The initial training is known as Getting Started and involves completing two initial modules and discussing the way forward with a training adviser within five months of appointment.

While these modules can be completed online, it is always good to meet other adults also starting out on their training journey.

Module three will be delivered on Monday, November 18, and repeated on Wednesday, November, 20 between 7pm and 9pm at the Jim McKellar Scout Centre in Denny. Further details from: fdstrainers@outlook.com.
