IF A firetruck is whizzing quickly towards your house, it's probably safe to be something has gone awry and you might be feeling a bit out of sorts.
But a truckload of Tamworth firefighters trekked to the hospital to douse Ronald McDonald House with a bit of Easter cheer, handing out some chocolate eggs to kids and their families.
Region duty commander Peter Nugent tasked five of his friendliest firies with the mission which has become a regular event on the Tamworth brigade's calendar.
"It's just a bit of a feel-good thing to hopefully make the kids feel a little better," he said.
"All the kids love a firie."
The Tamworth Ronald McDonald House has been open for 10 years and assisted more than 2200 children who've had to travel for medical treatment.
