Sheppey firefighters are welcoming local residents to the fire station on Saturday, 24 September and helping to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support at the same time.
The free event running from 10am to 4pm, offers an opportunity to look round the fire station and will feature a number of exciting displays aimed to show how KFRS keeps people safe, including the fire engines and fire boat.
St John Ambulance Service will be offering basic first aid tips to help families feel prepared in an emergency. Kent Police are also attending with a response vehicle and the Coastguard Agency with their rescue equipment.
Organiser of the event, firefighter Andy Friday, said: "There will be plenty to interest the whole family at our community open day, which will be jam packed with activities and information designed to help keep you and your loved ones safe."
Other attractions for the day include face painting, the band of Sheppey St Johns, an ice cream van and a charity raffle. There will also be refreshments, a barbecue and cake stall with all money raised going to McMillan Cancer Support.
Andy ended: "Why not bring the family to this free day out, it's a great opportunity for people to come along, meet the crews and pick up some potentially life-saving tips, while helping raise much needed funds for MacMillan Cancer Support.
"We're looking forward to welcoming visitors to the station and hope everyone enjoys what promises to be a fun and informative event."
