Fire Safety Training

Chinese firefighters in eastern China jumped at the chance when they were asked to put 300 mini-skirted girls in stilettos and plenty of make-up from a “hostess bar” for a day of safety training.

Hostesses arrived at the fire station in Wenling, Zhejiang province for a fire safety course and were soon being instructed in how to properly use a fire extinguisher.

They didn’t need to be asked twice. All the girls with their off-the-shoulder tops are assistants at a local KTV bar, a cross between a karaoke bar and a hostess club.

Fire Alarm Drill: The hostesses take part in a mock fire alarm, covering their mouths and noses with handkerchiefs so they do not inhale smoke

Safety Instructions: They were there for a fire safety course and were soon being instructed in how to properly use a fire extinguisher

Training: Firefighters in eastern China jumped at the chance when they were asked to put 300 mini-skirted girls from a hostess bar through their paces.

A fire service spokesman said: “It is a public building and the staff have to go through fire safety courses to get a public entertainment license.” But he played down any suggestion that the firemen in any way enjoyed their day’s work.

He further explained: “The girls were wearing mini-skirts and high heels because that’s what they wear at work. It was all the same to our men.”

Any volunteers for future training days?
