Cllr Andy Crump, portfolio holder for Warwickshire Fire & Rescue Service, said: "We're delighted to be in a position where we can once again welcome members of the public to come and spend time at our local fire stations.
"It's a great day out for the family, and it gives us the opportunity to make those all-important links with the communities we're serving.
"The better we know our communities, the better we can protect them."
