Nelson Fire Station Open Day


As part of the Nelson Fire Brigade’s 150 year anniversary celebrations, an open day was held this morning that attracted a number of families wanting to learn more about the service. As well as a range of historic vehicles on display, including a horse drawn pump from the early 1900s, current fire fighters also performed demonstrations of fire fighting and rescues. Yesterday featured a reunion of current and ex-firefighters while tomorrow will see a farewell breakfast, bringing the 150 year celebration to an end.
