St Albans firefighters set to open doors to public
INFLATABLES, vintage fire engines and car accident demonstrations are just some of the highlights on offer when firefighters fling open their doors to the public this weekend.
St Albans Fire Station’s annual open day will be taking place between midday and 4pm on Sunday, September 5, and a range of fun activities for the whole family will be on offer.
Firefighters will be using their cutting equipment on cars, carrying out chip-pan fire demonstrations, handing out community safety advice and offering other attractions including modern and classic fire engines, a barbecue and face painting.
The fire station will also be collecting funds for the Firefighter’s Charity on the day.
n Scrap cars are needed at the fire station so that crews can continue their demonstrations and practice their skills.

The firefighters have seen donations of old vehicles dry up after the government introduced the car scrappage scheme last year.
They are appealing for any companies or individuals with unwanted vehicles to donate them to the fire service so that they can continue with their hard-hitting road safety community work and keep their skills up to date. Collection can be arranged.
