Firefighters use hoses to put out a house fire. The hoses spray water.

Firefighters wear a lot of gear. A helmet protects them from falling debris. Goggles protect their eyes from smoke. A radio helps them communicate. Their tools and clothing are carefully laid out in the fire station where they work. This allows them to get ready for a fire very quickly!
