What a crowd! Interesting to see how popular the 'Fire Station Open Day' used to be, Community Fire Safety is talked about like it is something new and it would be rare to draw similar attendances these days, perhaps there is something we could learn from not so long ago.

Even if crowds like this was to return i very much doubt that anyone would be standing on the roof like that in today's h&s world!!nice bell on the appliance!

Sadly h&s spoil a lot but to be honest best safe then sorry, and also this day and age because the few that spoil it for the rest. These open days will soon have to have all staff checked with c.r.b checks.
