In June of each year the St. Austell Community Fire Station is host to Junior Lifeskills week. This is a multi-agency event where local school children visit the station and experience a wide range of safety related activities, from RNLI beach safety to fire safety in the home. The event runs for one week with over 600 children attending.

Following Lifeskills the station hosts its annual Open Day in aid of The Fire Fighters Charity. It is an opportunity for members of the community to visit the station, look at the appliances and equipment and participate in lots of fun activities. There are also personnel and vehicles from the other emergency services on display. These events are hugely successful with large sums of money being raised for a very worthwhile cause.
