Excited children and their parents had the opportunity to tour Fire Station No. 1 on Saturday, the last tour day during the Christmas break.

This run of tours started Dec. 27 through to Jan. 5, taking up to 20 children and their parents per session. Each session was approximately one hour long and started at 10a.m. and 2p.m.

Children had the chance to climb up and sit in fire trucks and the water rescue boat, and learned about what equipment is stored in the trucks and what it’s used for.

These tours also take place at other times of the year and can be booked in advance.
