Bromsgrove Fire Station open day to return this weekend

Bromsgrove Editorial 20th Jun, 2023 Updated: 20th Jun, 2023   0

THE FIRST Bromsgrove Fire Station open day in four years will be taking place this Saturday (June 24).

The family event is free to enter and will take place at the Slideslow Drive station from 11am until 3pm.

Guests will be able to enjoy fire engine rides as well as chip pan fire and road traffic collision demonstrations.

There will also be the chance to see what the fire service’s urban search and rescue dog Radar does alongside the team.

And there will be a chance to get advice from the fire prevention team, while guests can also enjoy the children’s rides and refreshments.

The event is a collaboration between Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, West Mercia Police and West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service.

After the Covid pandemic prevented the two previous open days from taking place, the event was supposed to return last September but was cancelled as a mark of respect following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Bromsgrove Fire Station Watch Commander Lee Rudge said: “We all love the event.

“It’s a really good chance to engage with our community and it’s nice to see the kids enjoy it while also being educated.

“A lot of people think we just attend fires and car crashes so it’s good to show the public what we can do.

“It’s normally very busy with more than 500 people attending most years.”

Free parking will be available at the Artrix between 8.30am and 5pm.
