Free event – fun for all the family

The 15th Emergency Services Day is fast approaching. It’s on Sunday June 10th 2012 at the Pavilion Gardens Promenade, Buxton, 10:30am to 4:15PM

This great day out is a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of the work of the full time and volunteer emergency services.

There will be static displays by each of the emergency services where you can ask questions, pick up information, tips and advice, or take a look at their specialist equipment and vehicles. Throughout the day there will be arena displays, with a simulated road traffic accident, and a fire call.There’s plenty of fun for the children with the chance to wriggle through a mock cave, climb on board a fire engine, explore the Smoke House Tent, plus quizzes with instant prizes, face painting and much more besides. Open the flyer:

The day also showcases the other volunteer emergency services and organisations that work in partnership with the emergency services in the Peak District and High Peak; including Mountain Rescue, Cave Rescue, Search and Rescue Dogs Association, Air Ambulance, Red Cross Fire and Emergency Support Service, St John Ambulance, Community First Responders, Neighbourhood Watch, The Peak District National Park Authority and more. There will be a fun challenge activity between the services.

In addition, students from the University of Derby, Buxton College Uniformed Public Services courses will also be helping out on the day and whilst they are not an emergency service, bringing a little glamour to the event will be a marching display performed by Buxton’s splendidly uniformed and immaculately drilled troupe, the Billerettes.

Hope you can come along!
