Crews are inviting members of the public to take a tour of the new Chase Terrace Community Fire Station on Saturday, July 4.

"This is a great opportunity for the residents that we serve to take a behind the scenes look at the new community fire station in Chase Terrace. There will be a chance to see the fire engines and have a chat to the firefighters as well as taking a look at the community rooms which local groups can hire out, free of charge."

People can drop in at any time between 10am-2pm to have a look at the community rooms as well as the operational side of the station.

Watch Manager Tim Anslow, who has organised the event, said: “This is a great opportunity for the residents that we serve to take a behind the scenes look at the new community fire station in Chase Terrace.

“There will be a chance to see the fire engines and have a chat to the firefighters as well as taking a look at the community rooms which local groups can hire out, free of charge.”

The community fire station has replaced an outdated building on Rugeley Road which opened in 1969.

The new facility cost £1.7 million. It was built as part of the second phase of a PFI project.

A further nine community fire stations are being rebuilt on their current sites plus a brand new station at Loggerheads which will replace the 45-year-old station at Ashley.

The first phase saw three additional stations developed and seven stations replaced between October 2009 and September 2011.

The Service will have invested a total of £90 million, funded through a Private Finance Initiative, on improving the stations when the project has been completed.
