When Liverpool Fire Station Commander Dave Fanning wanted to reduce the number of nuisance fires, lower the number of false call outs to the fire brigade, stop youngsters from stoning firemen as were fire fighting - and stealing equipment from the fire engine as the firemen worked, he knew the secret was to engage children at an early age.
Dave knew that in almost every community in the world there are fire engines of some sort, and he knew that a friendly fire engine would be able to tell the safety message. But what to call the fire engine?
Looking at the duty roster one day Dave saw that three of his officers were of the same name - and so Phil the Fire Engine was born.
The captivating illustrations and stories give youngsters a focused fire safety message.
