Hove Community Fire Station’s Blue Watch will show off their skills at the Martletts Carnival held at Hove Park this Bank Holiday Monday (May 27). Firefighters from Blue Watch will be on hand to give you a warm welcome and discuss what’s involved in modern day firefighting and prevention work. Their emergency appliance will be there for families to look around.
Displays will include the Community Fire Safety stand with information about East Sussex Fire & Rescue Services ‘Black Museum’ website, chip pan fire demonstrations and badge making for the children. For any budding football enthusiasts the Coaching for a Safer Community inflatable goal will be there – perfect for expending that last bit of energy.
Mark Matthews, City Borough Commander said “We welcome everyone from our local community to come along and meet their local firefighters. It’s a great opportunity to see what they do every day and how they work to reduce fire, road traffic collisions and other emergencies in Hove whilst ensuring they are fully prepared to react to emergency incidents when they do occur.The role of the fire service continues to expand and widen as the risk to the communities we serve changes.
What will never change is our commitment to ensuring the safety of residents, road users, businesses and visitors to Brighton & Hove”
