If you are free today between 11am & 2pm, you are invited to log on for the first “Online Open Day” organised by Kent Fire and Rescue.
The online open day will take place on the Kent Fire and Rescue Service Facbook page, starting with Sittingbourne fire station. A number of videos will be posted throughout the day until 2pm, each one with a different theme.
There will even be an online activity trail, with fun videos and questions, that everyone can fill out at home. Once completed, families will be able to enter a competition to win a tour of their local fire station*.
Ann Millington, Chief Executive of KFRS, said: “We know there’s a lot going on in the world right now, but learning vital fire safety advice is still incredibly important- especially with more people at home during this time cooking, using electricals and having barbecues. We’re really excited to launch the first ever online fire station open day, so that families can watch along and learn at home. We do hope you’ll save the date and tune in on the day to enjoy the educational videos, shows and interactive activity trail, as created by our firefighters and support staff – it’s going to be great fun for the whole family!”
For those that do not like Facebook, you may have to amuse yourself with some Fireman Sam movies from YouTube.
*- Visit will be planned after the COVID-19 crisis is over and if your local fire station is still open.
