One of the city's fire stations celebrated a decade of saving lives - welcoming the public through its door.
North Earlham Fire Station, on Ivy Road, greeted families, for a day of demonstrations, entertainment and family fun on Saturday.
Guests were treated to activities put on by organisations across the emergency services, with an appearance from the East Anglian Air Ambulance proving a particular hit.
Firefighters were on the scene to give families demonstrations of the many different ways they help to save lives every day, including rescue, search dog and road traffic collision demonstrations,
Alan Nicholls, station manager said: 'It was a fantastic day for everyone - the sun shone, the skies were clear and everybody had a really wonderful times.
