Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Fire Service 12 Days of Christmas

25/11/2011

A class of year six pupils from Berkswich Primary School in Stafford have re-written the ‘12 Day of Christmas’ song and turned it into a Fire Service themed song.

"Our tree will be covered in fire safety messages and anyone visiting the church to see the trees will also be able to take away fire safety literature."

Reduction Officer, Jess Patten

The song lyrics will form part of Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Christmas Tree Festival entry which will be displayed at The Collegiate Church of St Mary’s in Stafford.

Last year, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s entry was the winning tree and they’re hoping for a repeat performance this year. Risk Reduction Officer, Jess Patten said: "This year we provided the class at Berkswich Primary School with fire safety messages and they have created Christmas tree decorations with the messages on them, such as ‘Push the Button.’

"The children were then given the task by their teachers of re-writing the 12 Days of Christmas to have a Fire Service theme.

"The finished song is absolutely brilliant, the children had lots of ideas and all worked together to pick out the best ones and put the song together. Our tree will be covered in fire safety messages and anyone visiting the church to see the trees will also be able to take away fire safety literature."

The festival opens on November 30th and members of the public can vote for their favourite tree.

They will also be able to see the Fire Service 12 Days of Christmas song in full which features lyrics including "On the first day of Christmas my fireman sent to me, a furry cat stuck in a tree," and "On the twelfth day of Christmas my fireman sent to me, twelve Stafford firefighters fighting the flames."
