Firefighters: A2 Key Reading Part 4

Read the article about visiting a fire station. Choose the best word for each space.

Meeting the firefighters

My name is Harry Webb. Last week, my class visited a fire station with our teacher. We meet James, (1) works at the fire station. James showed us (2) and told us about his job.

James is part of a team of firefighters called the Blue Watch. Every morning, he checks (3) the things in the fire engine to make sure nothing is missing. Everything must be in (4) right place. There is also a tall, empty building at the station where James can practise climbing in through the windows.

Jim let us (5) in the fire engine and try on the special clothes he wears, (6) we had to be careful not to start the engine or push the buttons!
