Luton Fire Station Open Day

Come along to the Luton Fire Station Open Day!

Enter the ‘haunted’ smoke house at Luton Fire Station open day

Ever wanted to see behind the scenes at a fire station? Or meet your local firefighters? Then come along between 12 and 4pm on Sunday 25 August to the Luton Fire Station open day.

Every Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service (BFRS) open day is free, though people can donate to the Fire Fighters Charity and other good causes. There will be plenty to see and do for children of all ages, including the children’s firefighter challenge, the spooky smoke house activity, a chance to see the fire engines and even to dunk a firefighter! There’s also a BBQ, refreshments and a charity raffle.

Luton Crew Commander Steve Myland said: “We look forward to the public visiting our station. There will be activities including karting for youngsters, a road traffic collision demo, the ‘haunted’ smoke house and an obstacle course to name a few, so we guarantee a fun day out!”

The BFRS community safety team will also be there to give advice and information about fire safety and how to prevent a fire in your home.

If you are interested in joining the fire service either as a fire cadet, firefighter, an on-call firefighter or working in our control room taking calls, staff will be on hand for you to find out more.

Luton Station Commander Stuart Brereton said: “Open days are a fantastic family day out and a great way for people to find out about their local station and the services we provide to our community.

“We’re always looking for people to join us as on-call firefighters and it’s a great opportunity for people who might want to become a firefighter to come and ask questions.”
