The Emergency Services Family Fun Day provides a platform for all of the ‘blue light’ services to demonstrate their appliances, equipment and skills in a safe and controlled environment.

You and your family will be able to meet some of the great people who help to keep your community safe, with many activities and demonstrations for everybody to enjoy.

Meet paramedics and find out more about the local Air Ambulance. Learn how the Fire and Rescue Service rescues animals large and small. Experience how dangerous putting water onto a chip pan can be and see why installing sprinklers is the best way to stop a house fire in its tracks and so much more.
