THIS year's Dunfermline Fire Station open day drew in their biggest crowd to date.

The fire station threw open their doors and 5,000 visitors walked through them for their annual Emergency Services day of fun last Saturday.

A series of practical demonstrations were delivered by firefighters with line rescue and water rescue teams having their equipment on display.

Community groups turned out in force with CPR training carried out as part of an innovative partnership with the British Heart Foundation.

More than £4,000 was collectively raised by the charity groups there on the day.

Firefighter and organiser Julia MacKenzie couldn't believe the turnout and said: "This year was undoubtedly the best we've ever had. People came from all over to come and take part in we're so thankful to everyone who came along; from volunteers to visitors.

"I think we had around 5,000 people arrive for the day as it was unbelievably busy.

"It seems like it's getting better year after year.

"We like a challenge and we're going to have a wrap-up meeting next week so we can start coming up with new ideas for next year already.

"We've had phone calls from people asking when it's going to be next year. It's absolutely brilliant."
