There is always a recruitment drive ongoing for firefighters in Sutherland.
So hopefully pupils from Tongue Primary School and Early Learning Centre will remember a visit they made to their local fire station today and be inspired to join the service when they grow up.
The youngsters were accompanied by principal teacher Dee Roberts.
They were shown around the station by firefighters George Mackay and Thomas MacKenzie who also demonstrated how to use the hose and other equipment.
Lena Mackay, whose father is one of the Tongue crew, and Nell Gunn Maclean enjoyed climbing into the cab of the fire truck.
