Emergency Services Day at Evesham Fire Station - Come and join the fun!

in News

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service will be hosting the annual Emergency Services Day in Evesham at the end of July.

The event, which offers a packed programme of activities for all the family, will be held at Evesham Fire Station in Merstow Green on Saturday 31 July from 11am until 4pm.

Evesham firefighters will be on hand, along with representatives from the West Midlands Ambulance Service and West Mercia Police, to offer free safety advice and to give a series of demonstrations and displays. West Midlands Search and Rescue (WMSAR) will also be attending.

Attractions include road traffic collision demonstrations, a water rescue equipment display and the smoke tent, while the Line Rescue Team will also attend. There will also be a mobile police station and response vehicles for visitors to have a closer look at, plus a hog roast and ice cream.

Entrance to the event is free of charge and there is parking immediately opposite the fire station.

Watch Manager Julian Jenkins said: "Everyone is welcome to come along to the fire station to meet the fire crews and learn more about the work we do, particularly in partnership with police and ambulance staff.

"With specialists from each of the emergency services attending, it's an ideal time for people to get safety advice on a range of different issues and to follow up any particular concerns they might have. There's also a variety of activities planned for children and adults alike to try and we hope that people will come along and join in the fun."

All proceeds from the event will go to the National Fire Service Benevolent Fund.
