Fire safety was on the agenda at an advisory workshop day on Saturday.
Biggleswade Fire Station was the venue for the event, where officers from Bedfordshire Fire Rescue Service and other organisations offered tips and advice on staying safe.
Firefighters were on hand to demonstrate how their equipment works and they also talked about how their fire engines are some of the best equipped in the country.
Safety advice leaflets were also available.
Guests included Biggleswade mayor Councillor Hazel Ramsay.
