A FIRE station is opening its doors to the public on Saturday, August 23, to showcase its work.

Northwich Community Fire Station, at Braddon Close, in Leftwich, is holding a free open day between 11am and 3pm.

Among the attractions on the day include crews re-enacting a rescue following a road traffic collision as well as rope rescue, chip pan safety and Fire Cadet demonstrations.

There will also be vintage and modern fire service vehicles, including the hydraulic platform and boats, and free face painting and ice cream for children.

Partner agencies attending the day include Weaver Vale Housing Trust, Cheshire Police, Age UK and St Luke’s Hospice.

Organiser, watch manager Frank Williamson, 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 Northwich and the surrounding area how their community fire station works hard to keep them safe."
