Dunfermline fire station open day

Publish Date:

Come along to our free open day!

Dunfermline fire station is once again opening their doors to the public for their annual open day on Saturday the 10th August from 11am – 4pm.

Hosted by the newly formed Scottish Fire and Rescue Service this free day welcomes locals to enjoy a selection of displays, community safety demonstrations and fun activities run by the stations firefighters and other partner agencies.

Station Manager Dave Wishart said “This open day is a great free family day out.  We had over 2000 people come and see us last year which was fantastic!

“During the day we have road traffic collision demos, chip pan demos along with the opportunity to sit in a fire engine.  We also have a variety of stalls including face painting, cake and candy, tombola, bouncy castle and a raffle. 

“This event also allows us to raise some much needed money for The Fire Fighters Charity who enhance the quality of life for serving and retired fire fighters, fire personnel and their families and The Scottish Burned Children’s Club who provide a network of support for burn survivor children and their families dealing with the lifelong scars of burn and scald injuries.

“Our partners also take part in the day and this year we have representation from Police Scotland, Scottish Ambulance Service, Coastguard, the Army and we even have a vintage fire engine.  Like us, they have a role in working together for a safer Scotland.

 “Last year the sun was shining and we hope the sun will be out this year.  Please come along and join us for a fun family day out.”
