Our Strategies, Plans and reports
Fire station open days
At a fire station open day you can have a look round a fire engine, watch a ‘cooking oil fire' demonstration or see someone rescued from a car.
We will be listing our 2020 Open Days soon.
Not all open days have the same activities and some depend on the weather. That may include:
- a teddy bear 'parachute drop' from the top of the drill tower (bring your own teddy)
- other specialist emergency vehicles and services
- smoke experience
- Reqs the fire investigation dog
- stalls, food and entertainment.
On occasion an event may be cancelled without prior warning.
Please do contact the fire station direct before travelling.
You can also stay up to date with Fire and Rescue updates on Twitter.
