We had a beautiful sunny day on Saturday this week for the annual Swalwell community Fire and Ambulance Station open day. A great time was had by all, and we had approximately 800 visitors in the 4 hours we were open to the public. The Fire service did a fantastic job of organising a day full of events and rides for the kids to enjoy.
We had the opportunity to do a couple of RTC extrication exercises along with the Fire Service and the Police, which worked really well and we also helped out the Swalwell young fire fighters with a couple of exercises that they did.
Since it is a little way from where you live, I thought I would give you a quick tour of what we had on offer. (I know the ambulance section looks a bit quiet, but it did get busier when all the kids got fed up with looking at the shiny red fire engines – An ambulance will never be as cool as a fire engine!)
