IT IS not every day you see three generations of a firefighting family around the same the hose.

But that was the case when Bishop's Waltham Fire Station visited Upham Preschool.

Here you can see three members of the Cole family practicing their extinguishing skills together.

The fire station posted to Twitter: "This morning the crew visited the children at The Village Pre-School Upham to carry out some Community education.

"A fun morning and there was even a photo opportunity for three generations of Coles."

The pupils letter sent the firefighters a handmade thank you card, which the fire station shared to Twitter saying: "Thank you to the children of The Village Pre-School Upham for your card, great to know that your enjoyed our visit."
