Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Join Kidsgrove Firefighters for a Cuppa!

25/10/2011

Kidsgrove Community Fire Station will be throwing opening its doors to the local community from 26th October and inviting people to come in for a chat and a cuppa.

"This is a great opportunity for us to give the public a real insight into the Fire Service and for them to see all the different kinds of work we are involved in."

Kidsgrove Station Manager, Glynn Luznyj

The drop-in sessions will run on October 26th from 3pm – 6pm and October 29th from 10am – 1pm. Members of the local community are invited to pop into the station, meet the crew and have a tour of the brand new station.

Kidsgrove Station Manager, Glynn Luznyj said: "We are holding the drop-in sessions because we want to get to know our local community as this is after all a Community Fire Station. If you want to come along to see the station, meet the crew or even just to have a chat and a cup of tea then feel free to come along to any of the drop-in sessions.

"This is a great opportunity for us to give the public a real insight into the Fire Service and for them to see all the different kinds of work we are involved in. It’s also a great way for us to raise awareness about the importance of fire safety in a fun and informal atmosphere."

Parking is only available for blue badge holders onsite, however additional parking can be found on nearby streets.
