Fire crews from across West Sussex are inviting you in for an exclusive look behind the scenes at their upcoming Open Days.
The events, which are free to attend, are a great opportunity for the public to find out more about their local fire station, what the role of a professional firefighter involves and to gain vital safety advice.
The events are as follows:
• 21 July - Worthing Fire Station, 10:00-16:00
• 28 July – Crawley Fire Station, 10:30-16:00
• 6 October – Bognor Fire Station, 10:00-16:00
Watch Manager at Worthing Fire Station and event organiser, Darren Wickings, said: “Our Open Days usually attract around 10,000 visitors and I’m hopeful that this will be the biggest and best one yet.
“This year we are extremely fortunate to have a special guest, Kenny Tutt - the winner of Masterchef 2018 – and a fire engine from the hit TV series, London’s Burning.
“A lot of hard work and preparation has been put into making the Open Day a great event and we’re all really excited to meet the local community in a positive environment.”
Fun for all the family is guaranteed with many attractions, including:
• Fire engine simulator
• Fire Station tour
• Fire and road safety advice
• Trying on fire kit
• BBQ and confectionary
• Displays and vehicles from other emergency services
Any profits made will be given to The Fire Fighters Charity and other local charities.
