A fire open day was held at Kings Langley fire station to help spread a community safety message.
The open day, which ran on Wednesday, June 1 from 2pm – 5pm, included visitors exploring fire engines and testing out some of the life-saving equipment that is used by the firefighters every day in emergencies.
As well as being lots of fun, the open day provided a great opportunity for people to talk to the firefighters about a range of issues, including fire safety in the home, and how to sign up for a free Home Fire Safety Check.
Offering a selection of food and refreshments to the public, the open day managed to raise £204 for The Fire Fighters Charity, a charity that delivers physical and mental health, and social wellbeing services.
The fire tation also wants to increase awareness of the opportunity to become a on call fire fighter.
Firefighter George Tucker said: “We will be holding an event locally for people to come along and have a chat with us, to get familiarity of potential recruits. It’s designed for those who are thinking or might be interested becoming on call fire fighters. Keep your eyes open it will be published on the Kinga Langley Fire station Facebook page.”v
