The annual event, taking place on Wednesday 1 June between 11am and 4pm, aims to showcase the many services the Brigade provides and give people the opportunity to ask questions and participate in fun activities and safety lessons.
The day also coincides with National Family Week (30th May – 5 June) which aims to encourage families to spend more time with each other. With so many activities planned, the Open Day will make a great family day out as it has something for everyone.
Some of the activities planned include: football, rugby, ride a fire engine, face painting, balloon modelling, climbing wall, wear a breathing apparatus mask, owl display and giant sized traditional games. Middlesbrough Football Club will also be bringing their Health Bus and there will be urban street dancers performing.
Kevin Readhead, Head of Learning and Development said: “This is the fourth Open Day we have held and last year we had 800 visitors through the doors enjoying all the activities in the sun.
“We hope this year’s is as successful and the public take the opportunity to come and see us, as it will be a great family day out and a great way to get vital safety tips to help keep you and your family safe.”
- The event is taking place at Cleveland Fire Brigade’s Learning and Development Centre, Slip Road, Church Lane/Trunk Road, Grangetown, Middlesbrough, TS6 9AA.
