Evesham’s new fire station opens its doors to the public for the first time
The new Evesham Fire Station on Abbey Road will be opening its doors to the public for the first time this Saturday (19 August) from 11am - 3pm for its annual open day. The event is free for all to attend and promises to be entertaining for all of the family.
There will be a wide range of fun filled activities for everyone to enjoy including a house fire demonstration where you can watch firefighters demonstrate how they would use a powered fan to clear smoke and heat from a building fire. Fire safety displays including a chip pan fire demonstration and a boiling liquid expanding vapour explosion (BLEVE) demonstration will also take place on the day.
Additional to this a rope rescue team from Malvern will be on site, as well as the smoke tent and the community fire safety team. There will also be representatives from West Mercia Police, West Midlands Ambulance and the British Red Cross will all be doing various activities.
Visitors will have the chance to have a first-hand look at the impressive equipment and vehicles at the station, as well as take a guided tour around the new station throughout the day.
Visitors will be able to indulge in some of the refreshments that will be on sale throughout the day. There is no parking available on the fire station, but there is a public paid for car park at Rivers Gym on Abbey Road.
