Community enjoy a morning learning about the fire service
A DAY of fun was in store at Peel’s fire station at the weekend.
People of all ages were treated to a number of demonstrations from firefighters at the station’s coffee morning.
The sun shone as little ones enjoyed getting to grips with the water hose and taking a ride on the aerial platform ladder.
The coffee morning was a fantastic opportunity for people to get an insight into how a section of the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service works.
Peel fire station’s annual event was well supported by the community.
As well as the usual games for people to participate in, there was a raffle and stalls selling refreshments. Peel crew were on hand offering free safety advice.
A total of £600 was raised for the Fire Services National Benevolent Fund and Manx Muscular Dystrophy Group.
Firefighter Kelvin Dawson said: ‘It was a fantastic turnout and it went very well. There were plenty of people around to see how the fire service works and to receive safety advice. It was an opportunity for people to see what the emergency service does.’
