Our Open days 2018

Last updated  21 May 2018

Every year Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service Open throw their doors open to members of the public to come and meet their local Fire Fighters and find out more about what they do. These events provide something for the whole family to enjoy while raising money for a worthy cause.

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.

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.

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.
