Seaford firefighters invite families to fun event

Seaford families are invited to enjoy a free, fun day being organised by the town’s community fire station.

Their Open Day will be held this Saturday (23rd June) from 11am until 3pm, with a whole host of activities for all the family to enjoy.

There will be dramatic rescue demonstrations along with the East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service’s fire bike, Aerial Ladder Platform and rope rescue team.

Come rain or shine the day will go ahead with a friendly welcome for anyone who comes along.

The station’s crews are hoping to both entertain and meet members of the public to offer them valuable safety advice, alongside both Sussex Police and South East Coast Ambulance Service.

Crew Commander Mark Fisher said: “It is important to hold an event to allow the community to meet the staff here on station, to explain to them what we do and to reduce the likelihood of them requiring our services.”

For example, the crowd-pleasing fire bike will be on display which always attracts the attention of motorbike lovers.

Mark added: “We often have the bike on display as people happily come up and talk to us in a relaxed environment and we can promote rider safety across the county and encourage riders to enrol on the Bike Safe courses.”

The elite team of advanced motorcycle riders from ESFRS work together, to reduce death and serious injuries on our roads and are very pro-active in road safety projects.

At the same time the station’s firefighters will be collecting for both the Fire Fighters Charity and local charities.
