NOT content with Saturday’s fleeting spell of blazing hot weather, one fire station chose to turn up the heat even more.

The Hemel Hempstead HQ in Queensway raised £1,600 at its annual open day with dramatic chip pan fire demonstrations and staged road and traffic collisions for more than 1,000 visitors.

The station also proudly displayed its new FireBike, which in partnership with police is taken around the borough to events to highlight the dangers of motorcycles.
