Open Day at Evesham Fire Station

in News

The free event will be held from 12pm to 4pm at the station in Merstow Green.

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 (H&WFRS) will be on hand to offer fire, road and water safety advice.

Operational firefighters from Evesham will be carrying out rescue scenarios, and visitors will also have the chance to look around the fire engines, enjoy refreshments and other activities.

Station Commander Gary Jay 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."

With H&WFRS planning to set up a new branch of the Young Firefighters Association (YFA) in Evesham in September, existing members of the YFA will also be on hand during the open day to explain more about the organisation and to encourage young people from Evesham and the surrounding area to consider joining.
