Newhaven fire station throws open their doors to local community

If you’re wondering what to do with the family this weekend, why not go along to Newhaven fire stations Open Day on Saturday 30thJune, 11.00am – 3.00pm.

Children will be able to have a good look around fire engines and other emergency vehicles as well as trying out using a hose to put out a mock fire!

There will be lots of demonstrations throughout the day showcasing extrication and rescue demonstrations, along with old fire engines from days gone by.

Visitors to the station will also be able to wear simulated breathing apparatus and search for a casualty and try out the world famous blue light simulator to experience driving to a call on blue lights.

Firefighter, Bernie Botwright, said: “Newhaven firefighters have organised lots of displays and demonstrations throughout the Open Day and we're really looking forward to meeting our local community and welcoming people to the station. It will be a great day out for the whole family."
