Your local Firefighters are throwing open the doors of their Community Fire Stations this summer for their ‘Open Days’ and are inviting everyone from their local community to come along and see their appliances and learn about fire safety.

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.
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.
