Annual open day at Evesham's fire station this Saturday

EVESHAM’S brand new fire station will be opening its doors to the public for the first time this Saturday for its fun-filled annual open day.

The station on Abbey Road will be open from 11am until 3pm where there will be exciting demonstrations taking place throughout the day, including a house fire demonstration where firefighters will demonstrate how they would use a powered fan to clear smoke and heat from a building fire.

There will also be fire safety displays including a chip pan fire demonstration and a boiling liquid expanding vapour explosion demonstration will also take place on the day.

As well as that a rope rescue team from Malvern and the community fire safety team will be on site. Representatives from West Mercia Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service and the British Red Cross will be hosting various activities.

Firefighters from the station will also be inviting visitors to come and take a closer look at some of the impressive equipment the crews use in emergencies which include fire service boats and fire engines.

The event is free, but visitors will be unable to park at the station. Parking is available at the Evesham Leisure Centre and the Viaduct Meadow Car Park.
