Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service is inviting communities and local residents of all ages to its fun-filled Family Day this Saturday (10 September).
The event – which is free to attend and the first Family Day to be held since 2018 due to the pandemic, will take place on Saturday (10 September) 11am-3pm at the Service’s Pirehill headquarters near Stone.
From daring rescue demonstrations, to seeing the fire appliances fleet, to treasure hunts and plenty of other games and activities, there is something for everyone.
The service’s aerial ladder platform, Unimog off-road vehicle, and other emergency vehicles will be showcased at the event, while firefighters will demonstrate rope rescues and extrication techniques that are used in road traffic collisions.
Young people can take part in various games and activities, including penalty shoot-outs to hook-a-duck, as well as enter competitions to win a host of top prizes including an Amazon Fire HD10 tablet, Go Ape tickets and cookery classes.
And there will be plenty of refreshments including a barbecue, hog roast, children’s meals, ice creams and hot and cold drinks. Picnics are also welcome and there is a complimentary water dispenser on site.
