ACTION-PACKED OPEN DAY AT LITTLEHAMPTON FIRE STATION
It’s going to be an action-packed day in Littlehampton on Saturday 9th July when the Fire Station opens its doors for its annual Open Day.
Firefighters are inviting local residents to spend the day with them at the station on Maltravers Road where they will be putting on a whole host of activities and displays throughout the day.
West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service runs open days across a number of its county stations, offering a unique opportunity for people to get a rare peek behind the scenes of their local Fire Station, find out more about the role of the modern firefighter and pick up some really valuable fire and road safety tips.
With firefighting and rescue displays, a variety of stalls, bouncy castle, an array of children’s entertainment, raffle and refreshments, there will be plenty to keep the whole family entertained. Colleagues from the Police and Ambulance Service will join fire crews on the day and there will be a host of vehicles and specialist equipment on display.
Watch Manager at Littlehampton Fire Station, Niall Cooper, said:
“Our Open Day is a great opportunity for the community to come and meet us and find out a bit more about what we do and how we are working with our local partners to make Littlehampton safer. We have also planned loads of fun activities with something for everyone, so bring the whole family and make a real day of it.”
The day runs from 10am until 3pm and Maltravers Rd will be closed for the duration. Entrance is free and any proceeds from the day will be donated to the Firefighters Charity.
