Peterborough fire station to open its doors to the public

Dogsthorpe Fire Station is opening its doors to the public on Saturday, July 6 for a free event that promises something for all the family.

Thursday, 27th June 2019, 10:24 am

The station will be open for members of the public to come and find out what life is like at a fire station and to take a look around our fire engines.

Joining the event will be Gemma’s Hearts, which be raising awareness of cardiac arrests and teaching CPR, a valuable lifesaving skill. Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership will also be sharing road safety advice.

There will be plenty of sweet treats on offer, including an ice cream van and tea and cake stand. There will also be an Indian food stall and henna stand.
