Dagenham fire station is opening its big red doors for residents for its regular open day.
Fire fighters will be showing people in on Sunday, September 15, giving them the opportunity to see brand new fire engines, get fire safety advice and arrange home safety visits.
The day is to include fun and games like bouncy castles and an ice cream van as well.
Dagenham's blue watch commander and 22-year fire brigade veteran Mark McLachlan will be at the event.

"Residents can see what we do behind these big red doors that they don't get to see behind much," he said.
"It's to see a bit more in-depth what we do on a day-to-day basis.
"We're also hoping to have our fire cadets down to have a chat with youngsters that [are thinking] about joining.
So the open day can happen, the station will be on what's called 'secondary mobilisation', meaning they'll only be called if there's a major incident.
Police and paramedics from the area will also be around to meet residents.
