Fun day sheds light on fire safety
VINTAGE fire engines stood side by side with modern appliances for an open day at Gloucester South Community Fire Station and SkillZONE in Tuffley.
Families were be able to learn more about the job done by today's fire and rescue crews with a mock house filled with smoke.
A hovercraft, which is designed to deal with large-scale water incidents, such as the 2007 floods, was also on display at the event on Saturday.
County councillor Will Windsor-Clive, cabinet member for communities, said: "The event was a great chance for families to learn more about fire safety and to have some fun."
