Fire crews at Rushden have been continuing to carry out engagement work in their local community.
Earlier today (January 10), firefighters from the station visited the Wat Pa Buddharam Buddhist temple in Irchester to carry out a Fire Safety Visit.
Crews from Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service will regularly carry out Fire Safety Visits not just at domestic properties for residents, but with community groups and organisations to help increase safety awareness.
During the visit, the crew handed out fire safety advice and also familiarised themselves with the building so they can react quickly and efficiently should they ever be called to an emergency incident there.
While at the temple, they also took some time out to speak to the Temple’s leaders and learn more about the Buddhist culture.
The Rushden crew regularly pay visits to local community groups, and in November were recognised for the community work carried out within their local area at the annual Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service awards ceremony.
