THE relatively new fire station in Estepona held an open day to allow children and their families an insight on how the brigade works.
Bouncy castles and other attractions outside grabbed the interest of visiting children, who were also taken for tours of the station to see what happens inside.
The excitement began at noon, when firemen donned their uniforms and carried out a simulation of a traffic accident rescue situation.
Before the children could get over their excitement at seeing the heroes ‘at work,’ smoke began to pour from one of the buildings at the station as a second exhibition began, this time of firemen rescuing people from a building in flames.
The open day also served to open the doors of the new museum that has been created at the station, with various collectors’ items gathered by the team including helmets, extinguishers, tools and uniforms.
