Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service fire stations are part of their local community and we want people to come along and get to know their local firefighters.

These Open Days are a great opportunity to learn more about how we as an organisation serve the public and for the public in turn to give us some vital feedback about what more we can do to help them.

During the Open Day we'll be collecting for the Firefighters' Charity. The Fire Fighters Charity provide support to Fire Fighters who are injured, ill or in need of psychological support to come to terms with the life and death situations they face on a daily basis.

We now call these our COMMUNITY fire stations because we want organisations and groups to make use of the meeting rooms when they are not occupied by our own staff.
