Hundreds enjoy road safety event at fire station

Around 400 people enjoyed a visit to Melton Mowbray Fire Station in Nottingham Road on Sunday as fire crews opened their doors for a road safety event.


The event had lots to see and do to be able to relay the importance of the fatal four safety message which focusses on road safety.


Motorbikes from the Fire Service and Police were on display with representatives on hand to answer questions from members of the public.

Crew Manager James Marman who helped organise the event said: "It was a great day we had approximately 400 people through the doors and it’s great to be able to host these events again and share the importance of road safety to our community about the dangers of the fatal four, but also to assist in our partner agencies to promote their safety messages."


It is hoped that more events similar to this will be organised in the future.
