"We are looking forward to welcoming members of the community to the station and highlighting our potentially life-saving messages in an interesting and engaging way."

The event will take place at the facility on Reginald Mitchell Way from 10am-2pm.

Demonstrations will also be carried out to show the speed and route that smoke travels through a property using a model of a small family home.

Members of the Fire Cadets will be on hand to tell visitors about the programme and there will be a mobile police station.

The Youth Service and Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College will be attending the event and West Midlands Ambulance Service will be putting on demonstrations.

Representatives from community learning teams will be available and people will also be able to have their dogs micro-chipped.

There will be a penalty shoot-out and a range of children’s entertainment.

Sandyford Station Manager James Green said: "We are looking forward to welcoming members of the community to the station and highlighting our potentially life-saving messages in an interesting and engaging way.

"A whole range of partners will be joining us too so there will definitely be something to interest everyone. It promises to be a really good day so I would encourage people to come along and join us."
