Littlehampton firefighters look forward to hosting fun-filled Open Day


Release date: 30 May 2017

Firefighters will be holding a fire station Open Day on Saturday 17th June for everyone to enjoy!

The crew, based at Maltravers Road, will be opening the station’s doors from 11am-3pm for an opportunity for visitors to peek behind the scenes of the fire station, find out more about the role of a firefighter and pick up some valuable fire and road safety tips.

There will be displays of firefighter drills, as well as road traffic collision rescues and a chip pan fire demonstration.

The police will also be joining the Open Day, and an RNLI crew will be bringing one of their lifeboats to the station. A barbecue will be available throughout the day.

Watch Manager Graeme Woods, said: “The crew is looking forward to welcoming everyone onto the station on 17th June. We have all sorts of demonstrations and displays planned and will be offering safety advice and guidance to help keep our local residents safe. If you’re up for a good day out and want to get to know your local fire station a little bit better, please come and join us!”

Admission is free, any proceeds will be donated to The Fire Fighters Charity and other selected local charities.
