Ever wondered what fire fighters get up to when they’re not attending incidents?
Or what some of their support staff go to keep the county safe?
As part of #OurDay – a social media campaign on Twitter – the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) offered a snap shot of their work over a 24 hour period.
The #OurDay event is a yearly social media campaign to celebrate the diverse work completed by local councils and public bodies on a day-to-day basis.
The event took place last Tuesday (November 21) and the CFRS didn’t miss a minute, documenting every aspect of the day.
