City firefighters to take part in Open Cambridge

Cambridge city firefighters will be opening the doors of their fire station to give the public a glimpse of life on the frontline.

Parkside Place Community Fire and Rescue Station will be taking part in the city’s Open Cambridge event on Friday (9) and Saturday (10), along with dozens of other venues across the city.

The public can meet firefighters, look around the fire engines and learn more about the equipment used to save lives. Crews will be on hand to talk to residents about fire, water and road safety, and there will be interactive areas for children.

The fire station will be open to the public from 9am until 4pm. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
