CREWE Community Fire Station is throwing open its doors this Saturday, to showcase the many and varied ways firefighters and support staff are working hard to help residents stay safe.

The free open day takes place at the fire station in Crewe Road on Saturday, June 14 between 11am-4pm.

Crews will re-enact a rescue following a road traffic collision, as well as staging a chip pan fire demonstration.

Other activities will include a smoke tent and the Firefighter’s Charity stall.

Refreshments will also be available including ice cream and hot dogs.

Organiser and watch manager, Mark Brothwood, said: "I think many people would be surprised at just how much the modern fire and rescue service does to prevent and deal with emergencies.

“We're really proud to have this opportunity to show the people of Crewe and the surrounding area how their community fire station works hard to keep them safe."
