Open day - Bletchley, 11 September

22 August 2010

The last of this year’s fire station open days takes place at Bletchley from 12 noon to 4pm on Saturday 11 September.

Firefighters have organised a series of displays and amusements and are aiming to pass on vital safety information while giving everyone an enjoyable day out.

Visitors will also be invited to sign up for free safety checks in their homes, with free smoke alarms fitted where needed.

If you would like to book one of these checks but cannot come to the open day, please ring 01296 744477, send an email to or visit

The three vehicles based at Bletchley Fire Station - the fire engines operated by the station's wholetime and on-call firefighters, and the Fire and Emergency Support Service vehicle run by British Red Cross Volunteers - will be on display, and there will be a barbecue, refreshments, sideshows and tombola.

Station Manager Dave Norris said: "Everyone’s welcome - we are looking forward to meeting as many people as possible at this special day at their local fire station."

The open day will be raising money for The Fire Fighters Charity, a national charity which provides assistance to serving and retired fire and rescue service staff, their families and dependants.

Parking is available in Milton Keynes College's Bletchley Campus car park opposite the fire station in Sherwood Drive.
