Free advice for the home at Stratford fire station day
Stratford fire station hosts an open day for residents to experience a day in the life of a firefighter.
Firefighters are also offering free safety visits in Newham.
Families are welcome for a free tour around the fire station in Romford Road on Saturday, July 30 where they will be able to meet firefighters, hold the hoses and meet fire brigade rescue dogs.
A number of charities and organisations will be present at the event to hand out safety advice and talk to members of the public about fire prevention in the home.
But if you are a Newham resident, and you would like a more personal approach, free home safety visits can be arranged.
