Expert engineers will get a VIP tour of Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Vehicle Maintenance Facility this Wednesday.
“We are delighted to welcome members from the REME Veterans Association to our new workshop facility."
Retired members of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) Veterans Association have been invited to visit the new state of the art facility which opened earlier this year.
During their careers the members will have been responsible for repairing and maintaining the large array of equipment for the British Army. Around 30 visitors, from the Potteries and District Branch of the REME Veterans Association, will be given a guided tour of the new £3 million facility. The event will include a practical road traffic collision demonstration, which will be staged by Longton firefighters, and crews will also be discussing fire safety and taking home fire risk check referrals.
Transport and Engineering Manager, Rob Mason commented: “We are delighted to welcome members from the REME Veterans Association to our new workshop facility. We are keen to show them the engineering aspect of our service and the technology that we make use of when maintaining all of our vehicles and associated equipment.”
