Make the call to go to fire service open day

SIRENS could be ringing out from Boston Fire Station on Sunday, but it probably won’t be for a fire for once.

The station, on Robin Hoods Walk, will be holding an open day from 11am-5pm to give visitors the chance to see the inner workings of the fire crew.

The day will include fire engines which people will be able to look around, a crash car similator, safety tips from the service and investigation crews and a search dog.

Watch Commander support for East Division Tom Patrick said: “The aim of the open day is to show the public exactly what the service does.

“It’s not just about the life-threatening emergencies we deal with, but also the work we do to make our community a safer place to live.

“It will be a great fun day out for the whole family, where you can meet your local fire crews, view vintage fire engines and meet Fireman Sam.”

Visitors will also be able to experience the inflatable smoke house, listen to the fire brigade band and see drills from East Midlands Ambulance Service and LIVES.

There will be plenty of competitions, a raffle and a barbecue to keep everyone entertained.

All proceeds to the Fire Fighters Charity.
