Dursley Fire Station open day


Dursley Fire Station will open its doors to the community on Sunday 26th June.

The open day will take place from 10am until 3pm. Everyone is welcome.

Firefighters will show people what they do in a road traffic collision with a live demonstration of a person being cut out of a car.

Visitors can experience what it's like to be in a smoke filled room and learn what to do if they are faced with this situation.

An aerial ladder platform and the Special Incident Support Unit vehicle will be on show.

Safe and well advisors will be on hand to offer advice and the Road Safety Partnership and the local community police will have a stand.

There will be lots of fun activities for families and children including dressing up as a firefighter and a game using fire hoses to knock down targets and win a prize.

Severn Area Rescue (SARA) will have some of their boats and equipment on display.

Refreshments will be available.

Cllr Nigel Moor, cabinet member for fire, planning and infrastructure said, "As well as being great fun for all the family, fire station open days are a brilliant opportunity to find out how to stay safe. If you're in the Dursley area, do come along to this free event and find out more about the brilliant work our firefighters do."
