THE sunny weather brought the crowds flocking to Bo’ness fire station last Saturday to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its opening.

More than 1000 people participated in special events throughout the day organised by Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service.

These included face painting, hazard house - where children identified fire risks - and rope rescue demonstrations by firefighters.

Station manager Tom Penman said: “The day was a success with everyone who attended thoroughly enjoying themselves and gaining a wider appreciation of the role the firefighters carry out within the community.”
