HUNDREDS of people attended the annual open day at Bromsgrove Police and Fire Station.
There were a number of activities taking place yesterday afternoon, including fire engine rides and demonstrations of a road crash and from the Young Firefighters Association.
There was a host of charity and community stalls, tombolas and the chance to go into the fire service’s ‘smoke house’.
Visitors could also get fire safety and crime prevention advice.
There was also the latest stem cell search for Belbroughton boy Finn Hill who has blood cancer.
Mouth swabs were given by potential donors who could be a match for the brave seven-year-old.
Mascots from all the emergency services took part in a race with Peeler the West Mercia Police dog getting to the tape first despite the tough competition.

Lisa said: “This is the first one we’ve been to – it’s fantastic, so much to do.
“Joseph loves police cars and fire engines so we are looking forward to all the demonstrations.”
