St Albans Fire Station open day
ST ALBANS fire station is holding its annual open day this Sunday, September 9.
The free event from midday until 4pm will offer an insight into the life of a firefighter as well as a chance to look around the London Road station.
There will be various attractions and stalls at the family-friendly day including a chip pan demonstration and a walk-through smoke experience.
Firefighters will be using the ‘peg car’ which they dismantle to demonstrate how they get people out of car collisions as well as testing out hydraulic cutting equipment on scrap cars.
Hertfordshire’s fire investigation dog CC, along with her dog handler Nikki Harvey, will be on hand to show how they assist the fire service.
