Neath Fire Station is hosting an action-packed open day on Saturday 8th September from 10.00am - 4.00pm. Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service is encouraging people to join their local firefighters at the station to enjoy a whole host of displays, demonstrations and refreshments.
Visitors will be able to have a guided tour of the multi services site and learn more about the equipment and vehicles housed at the station. They will also be able to experience road safety and kitchen fire prevention displays, which are used to help raise awareness of safety.
Local firefighters and community safety staff will be on hand to chat to visitors about the fire and rescue service and its work in helping to keep communities safe from fire.
Watch Manager Darren Powis said: “This is a great opportunity to meet the Fire and Rescue personnel at Neath and see the activities they are involved in on a daily basis.
As well as fire safety displays, there will be rescue and car cutting demonstrations. There will be plenty of children’s activities including a bouncy castle, soak the firefighter, splat the rat and much more.
Fireman Sam will also be here for the day.
There is no entry fee for the open day. All proceeds from the day will be donated to The Firefighters Charity, which is the UK ’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired firefighters and their families.
We look forward to seeing you there!
