Free event for kids to be firefighters!

Free event for kids to be firefighters!

We are proud to support an exciting free event for children and their parents/guardians to visit Illingworth fire station on Saturday the 1st June and find out what it takes to be a real firefighter. The event starts at 2pm and is an exciting opportunity for children under 5 to visit the Fire Station with their parents, carers, guardians, uncles or grandparents.

This event is just one of many taking place as part of the Men as Parents programme - a whole fortnight of experiences aimed at helping men be the best parents/carers they can be.

A great time is guaranteed for both children and adults. Blaze Bear, the firefighters’ mascot, will be there leading the fun, and Little Freddie the mini fire engine will entertain the little ones.

Children can find out about all the different life-saving work done by firefighters, workstations will be set up for children to learn about the specialist equipment the firefighters use in emergencies and they’ll even get to squirt water! Their parents/guardians will be able to chat to operational firefighters and learn about fire safety in the home. Do you have smoke alarms in your home and an escape plan to use in an emergency?

Come along and join in the fun and learn about fire safety!

Where: Illingworth Fire Station, Halifax

When: Saturday 1st June, 2pm
