Open Day 27/08/2019

Summer open day 2019

What a turn out there was for this year's Bury Training and Safety Centre open day!

Around 400 people visited the centre and were joined by colleagues and partners including Greater Manchester Police, North West Ambulance Service, the Fire Service Museum and many more.

Our Community Instructors ran tours of the Safety Centre throughout the event looking at the control room, mobilisation area, theatre and a house full of hazards!

A ‘chill out area’ was made up full of magazines, children’s games, colouring activities, yoga poses and meditation books. This space created an area for the public to relax and enjoy some quiet time, either with their families, or alone.

There were rides and entertainment for children including a bouncy castle, fairground rides and the children’s fire engine in which people were driven around in. They all took place outside the centre either in the car park or inside one of our warehouse areas.

The Fire Fighters Charity raised a fantastic £290.17 with all the proceeds from the cake sales going towards them, and a contribution from anyone who had profited from the day.

An amazing day was had by all and the Training and Safety Centre would like to thank everybody who attended, both partners and guests. A big thank you to all the staff for all the hard work which went into the day, and all our wonderful volunteers for their support.
