Leighton Buzzard Community Fire Station Open Day

Local Firefighters are throwing open their doors on Sat 15 Sept between 12pm – 4pm and are inviting local people to come along and see their appliances and learn about fire safety.

Firefighters are organising an afternoon of fun and discovery for the whole family.  This year the theme for the day will be garden fires.


There will also be many other attractions, including:

  • Live garden fire demonstration
  • The opportunity to practice your firefighting skills with our hose reel
  • Stirrup pump fire challenge
  • Incident Command Unit display
  • Face painting


The Open Day promises to be a fun-filled event with plenty of opportunities for children and adults to learn more about your local fire station and its Firefighters.


Station Commander, Stuart Auger says “Everyone is welcome and everyone’s invited. Open days are a fantastic family day out and a great opportunity for people to come and find out about their local station and the services we provide to our local community.


“Why not mention the Open Day to all your friends and family. We look forward to seeing you on the big day”.
