Rotherham’s world famous firefighting TikTok stars are set give the public a chance to peek behind the scenes at the fire station where they work.
Firefighters on Rotherham blue watch have become famous around the globe after clocking up millions of views on the social network.
Now the firefighters behind the videos hope to give the public an insight into their important, lifesaving work by staging Rotherham fire station’s first open day in more than three years.
Watch Manager Adam Dilkes, said: “We’re really excited to be opening our doors and welcoming residents to take a closer look at what we do. The pandemic meant we had to temporarily put a halt to events like this, but we honestly cannot wait to show off our skills once more and meet some of the local people we serve with such pride.”
The open day will include a road traffic collision demonstration, a selection of fire service vehicles and the opportunity to soak a firefighter for charity.
Classic cars, taekwondo demonstrations, DJ, food stalls, birds of prey and vintage emergency vehicles will also be amongst the entertainment on offer.
Rotherham fire station open day on Fitzwilliam Road, Eastwood runs from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 29 October. Entry is free.
