Ever wanted to see around fire station or have a go with a fire hose? Want to know what it takes to be a firefighter or find out how to protect your family from everyday risks?
Every year Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service throw open the doors of our Community Fire Stations to our local communities so everyone can come along and meet their local firefighters and find out more about what they do. These events provide something for the whole family to enjoy while raising money for worthy causes like the Firefighters’ Charity
Come along for the chance to look around your local fire station, see all the fire appliances and other equipment we use to protect you and rescue you from fires, road traffic collisions and other emergencies and learn about how to prevent incidents and protect yourself and your family.
There’s a lot more to do with many stations giving adults the opportunity to see what it takes to be a firefighter while children can have a go at using a fire hose or picking up an egg with our special equipment used to extricating casualties from vehicles. There’s also the opportunity to see demonstrations by our firefighters and Fire Cadets.
These events are free and there’s no need to book. Just come along and enjoy a day of fun and facts:
