Date: 11th July, 2016
Christchurch fire station is holding an open day between 11am and 3pm this Saturday (16 July).
Visitors will be able to see the appliances based at the site in Fairmile Road, plus others from elsewhere in Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service.
Proceeds will be shared between the Fire Fighters Charity and Amelia’s Rainbow, a local charity which supports children with terminal diseases.
There will be a number of displays and demonstrations throughout the day, as well as stalls, refreshments and music, with support from the Service’s team of volunteers.
Visitors will be able to find out more about staying safe at home and on the roads, and there will also be the chance to find out more about becoming an on-call firefighter.
Station Manager Julian Lockwood said: “This is a chance to come and see the appliances and equipment that firefighters use, and we’re hoping for sunshine and a busy day! Admission is free but any proceeds or donations will be shared between two very deserving charities.”
