For their annual "open day", A33 Tottenham Fire Station had their three appliances on show [Pump Ladder, Pump & Turntable ladder} and A346 - Edmontons Fire Rescue Unit (FRU) made an appearance.
On the more unusual front, OK9 – the London Fire Brigade fire investigation dog Simba and his handler Anton Keach along with Simon from the London Fire Brigade Drone Team was also there with an array of drone equipment on show.
Warm, sunny weather was above for most of the day and the ice cream van did a brisk trade.
The on duty crews from A33 Tottenham crew put on a well-received drill which was a simulation of a building fire, with associated smoke, and people needing to be saved from the upper floors, using their 32 metre Turntable ladder and also a 135 ladder, the Mayor of Haringay also managed to be saved at one point.!
Rare public access to the BA chamber was available and the kids (and some adults) could squirt some water.
A display of historic incidents which the crews from Tottenham fire station have attended over the years attracted a lot of attention and the Firefighters Charity were in attendance and raffling some prizes, including a `Tottenham Hotspur experience`.
All in all, another fun filled, but long day, which our crew thoroughly enjoyed.
