Open day at Bolton North fire station
10:39am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
FIRE crews enjoyed a turnout of a different kind when the public enjoyed an annual open day.
Firefighters took a break from mainstream duties to put on fun activities for youngsters and spread important fire safety messages ahead of Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night.
The public were invited to join officers at Bolton North fire station in Crompton Way to enjoy face-painting stalls, a bottle tombola, market stalls and refreshments from a Salvation Army van.
The nearby Decathlon store offered free bike repairs to any visitors.
Greater Manchester Police and Bolton Mountain Rescue had representatives at the event, while firefighters gave demonstrations on how to deal with road accidents and chip pan fires.
Tony Loftus, crew manager at Bolton North, said: “The day has been very well supported as in previous years.
“With off-duty officers, support from Eccles and a few volunteers, we had about 30 people put the day on and it has been a great success.”
