Crowds turn out for open day at Cirencester Fire Station
CROWDS of people made the most of a rare and unique opportunity to take a look at how Cirencester's emergency services operate.
Cirencester Fire Station held an open day on Sunday, September 22 to allow local people to learn about the job performed by today's fire and rescue service.
Firefighters were on hand to show people how the equipment was used and to take part in demonstrations of chip pan fires.
Members of the police and ambulance service were also present at the day.
Paul O’Leary , watch commander at Cirencester Fire Station said, “It was a fun filled family day. The police and ambulance services joined the fire service for displays and demonstrations to capture the imagination of the public and drive the safety messages home.
“The event also managed to raise £950 for local charities with a cake stand, face painting, firelighter charity shop, prize raffles, ice-cream van, BBQ and even a fleet of Darleks doing their bit to help fundraise for great charitable causes.”
