Fire crew plans a day of fire and road wreckage
A DRAMATIC chip pan fire and a recreation of a road traffic collision will allow firefighters to showcase their lifesaving skills at an open day next weekend.
Demonstrations, displays and a wide range of activities will take place when Canterbury fire station opens its doors to the public from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, June 2.
Officers will save a volunteer "victim" from a mock road crash in a car-cutting demonstration, while a turntable ladder will be used to show off the techniques used to rescue people from burning buildings.
A chip pan fire demonstration will show the dramatic effect of pouring water onto a cooking oil fire.
