EASTER Ross firefighters were being grilled about their jobs by a group of primary school children earlier this week when duty called.

Some of the Invergordon Fire Station crew were at Bridgend Primary in Alness talking to the nursery, P1 and P2 classes about their jobs and sharing tips about staying safe.

During the session they were called to attend a vehicle fire in Hilton of Cadboll along with colleagues called from Tain.

They later posted: "Sorry to Primary 2 who were asking some really good questions at the end of the session when we were called away to a fire!"

The station has also been engaging with the wider community with its Cuppa with the Crew sessions.

The last one attracted in excess of 50 visitors in the run-up to bonfire night.

The next one is scheduled for Wednesday, November 22 at Invergordon Fire Station from 9am to 10.30am.

Chat, a hot drink and some biscuits are on offer and there's the opportunity to pick up useful fire safety information.
