Open Day at

One of a series of fire station open days held as part of the London Fire Brigade's 150th anniversary.

Children can sit in the driver's seat of a fire engine and pretend they are a firefighter for the day.

After exploring the inside of the appliance, youngsters can also try on a firefighter's uniform for the perfect photo opportunity.

Crew members from green watch will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have about their jobs and will later show off their skills with a turntable ladder demonstration, showing how they would rescue a casualty from a high level.

Visitors can try their hand at using one of the fire engine's hoses and squirt water as far as they can and will have the opportunity to see one of the brigade's new electric cars on display.

Children can have their faces painted and there will also be an ice cream van parked in the station yard for those who want to enjoy a cold treat.
