Open Day at Droitwich Fire Station

in News

The free event will be held at the fire station in Saltway between 12 midday and 4pm.

Those attending will be able to have a closer look at a range of equipment and vehicles used by the emergency services, and members of Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service will be on hand to offer fire, road and water safety advice.

Droitwich firefighters from both White Watch and Green Watch will be carrying out rescue scenarios. The Droitwich based Urban Search and Rescue team will also be ‘rescuing a casualty’.

Visitors will have the chance to experience a front room fire demonstration, look around the fire engines, enjoy refreshments and other activities.

Station Commander Ade Elliot said: “This is an annual event we all look forward to. It’s a chance to show the local community the type of incidents we get called to and the range of community safety work we undertake. We also hope to show the whole family the real dangers involved in some of the hazards we encounter on a daily basis.”
