Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service will be parking their fire engines at Booths in Carnforth on Saturday October 25 as part of a special family fun day.
The fire engines will be on show to the public and children of all ages will have the opportunity to climb aboard and learn about the functions of the fire engines from fire fighters at Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service.
Booths is hosting face painting and customers can sample while they shop with a number of product tastings on offer, including Booths range of sausages, local cheeses and festive specialities, including mince pies.
Booths has close links with Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service and employs a number of retained firefighters in its stores, one of whom is Simon Watton from Booths Carnforth.
75 per cent of fire stations in Lancashire are crewed wholly or to some extent by retained firefighters – those who typically have full-time employment in another profession but who provide emergency cover as firefighters, responding from their place of work to a 999 call alert.
Steve Allen, store manager at Booths in Carnforth, said; “We look forward to welcoming Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service to the store on Saturday and hope many families turn out to enjoy the events and tasty treats on offer.”
