Fire! (2?)

Firefighters in
Lancashire are being handed Polish phrase-cards with sentences including 'What is on fire?' and 'Are you hurt?' to help cope with an influx of eastern Europeans.

Free Polish classes are also on offer to firefighters, to help make them understood by the 50,000 Polish immigrants who have settled in Lancashire neighbourhoods.

Incase you don’t know I blogged about this in March 2006, however it was Grampian firefighters that used the language cards and those were printed in 13 different languages.

Immigrants should be able to speak English if they come to work here. If they can’t they shouldn’t be given a job.
