Dubai Firefighters – level 1

26-01-2017 15:00

There is a new machine for firefighters in Dubai. It has no special lights, no sirens and it is not red.

The city of Dubai is looking for new ideas to stop fire.

When summer temperatures can go up over 45 degrees Celsius, there is a need for a machine that is OK with hot weather and can stop fire. People made a new jet ski. It is good for fast reaction. It can go faster to difficult places.

When the jet ski is on location of a fire, it is time to use a jetpack. The jetpack puts the firefighter in the air. The firefighter can stop the fire from a higher point.

Busy traffic often slows the way of big fire cars. This new idea can help to save more lives.

Difficult words: siren (machine which make a lot of noise), jet ski (a machine for travelling on water), jetpack (a machine that helps you move off the ground).
