Coventry Fire Station is to host an open day as part of the Positive Images Festival, which aims to promote the city’s diverse culture and heritage.
The campaign runs from 13th June to 4th July and the Station Open day event will take place at the Fire Station in Radford Road between 12 and 4pm on Saturday, June 27.
Guests will be able to see a range of fire service demonstrations, including a road traffic collision rescue, the equipment and skills of the Technical Rescue team and a fire demonstration. Firefighters will be on hand to talk about their work and safety in the home and on the road, and make arrangements to visit people’s homes to carry our Home Fire Safety Checks.
The theme of this year’s festival is health, so a range of other agencies and organisations such as the city council’s Health Development Service, Age Concern, The NHS, the Police and Street Wardens will also be taking part.
People will be able to get health checks such as blood pressure, cholesterol, Body Mass Index (BMI) and endurance testing, as well as advice on giving up smoking, healthy eating and exercise.
Health-themed demonstrations will include aerobics, football and urban rebounding. Also on offer is free gym membership kindly donated by Warwickshire Health and Racquets Club.
Steve Shoker, from Coventry Fire Service, said: “The Positive Images Festival runs for two weeks, with a whole host of community partners getting together to hold events, shows and entertainment with the aim of raising Coventry’s profile.
“Everyone at West Midlands Fire Service here in Coventry is looking forward to taking part in the festival and hosting our open day event.
“We want the day to be fun, with lots of things for people to see and do, and also educational. The advice and services on offer will help people take positive steps to improve the quality of their life.”
As there will be no parking on the station itself, people attending the event are encouraged to use public transport, but there will also be car parking space at designated locations nearby.
