Date: 13th August, 2018
Wimborne Fire Station is opening its doors to the public this weekend, with a day that promises something for everyone. The open day will run between 11am and 3pm on Saturday (18th August), and any money raised will be donated to the Fire Fighters Charity.
There will be a wide range of activities to suit the whole family, including learning about the dangers of cooking during a chip pan fire demonstration as well as a look around the fire station to learn about the equipment and vehicles on station which are used to save lives every day. The fire crews will also be conducted some live demonstrations, showcasing how they deal with incidents they face every day such as road traffic collisions.
Watch Manager Stuart Tucker, who manages Wimborne Fire Station, said: “This is a great way for our local community to find out more about the local fire station. We would like as many people as possible to come along to our open day, have a great time and leave with some vital fire and road safety messages. There’s even the chance to talk with the crews about what it is like to be an on-call firefighter and sign up to join us.”
Also coming to support the event are Dorset Police, South West Ambulance Co-Responders and Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. Refreshments will be available as well as the opportunity to support the Fire Fighters Charity through their shop and a childrens corner.
