Date confirmed for East Preston Fire Station open day in 2022 – the first since 2019

Firefighters in East Preston are looking forward to throwing open their fire station doors and welcoming back the community for the first time since 2019.

Throughout the summer, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service events are being held across the county and families are invited along for jam-packed days full of fun and fire safety, as well as getting a look behind the scenes at the fire service.

At each of the open days, firefighters will be running a series of practical displays as well as being on hand to provide fire and road safety advice and answer any questions people have.

Peter Rickard, assistant chief fire officer, said: “Over the past two years, we have held virtual open days for members of the public to watch on social media but we have really missed being able to hold in-person events.
