YOUNG firefighters tried their hand at being heroes for the day.
Halifax fire station opened its doors for their annual open day and visitors flocked to the station at King Cross.
With the sun shining they tried mountain biking, played football and picked up some treats at the stalls. Crews from Halifax demonstrated an aerial rescue from the tower and the technical team from Cleckheaton showed a vehicle extrication.
The day raised more than £1,500 for Overgate and Kirkwood Hospices and the Firefighters’ charity.
Firefighter Jimmy Fitt said: “It went really well and was a great day. The crowds just kept coming from noon onwards.”
He thanked the hundreds of people - of all ages - who went along.
Entertainment was provided by Theatretrain, Bazzamatazz and the Sowerby Village school Rhythm Sticks group.
