Fun packed day in store at Rescue Day
Updated: Jul 8, 2019
It’s just days to go until Rescue Day, the annual emergency services day being held this Saturday, 13th July, at 7 Lakes Country Park in Crowle, North Lincolnshire and it’s shaping up to be another action-packed mixture of live 999 displays and fun for all the family.
Organisers have lined up live mock demonstrations involving all of the emergency services showing how they would deal with the likes of train crashes, aircraft incidents, water rescues, house fires, police chases and much more.
A full schedule of live displays is planned with East Midlands Ambulance Service, Humberside Police and Humberside Fire & Rescue Service at the centre of the action, along with many more regional emergency and voluntary rescue teams involved.
British Transport Police will show how they deal with a public order incident, Ambulance
Hazardous Area Response Teams and Fire Service Urban Search and Rescue Teams will be demonstrating their specialist skills, plus working dogs including those from Humberside Police, K9 Fire Investigation and favourites from Pete Lewin Newfoundlands will all be in action. The ever popular Red Devils Army Parachute Display team will be making a spectacular splash as they land into the main lake at 1pm and the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and Children’s Air Ambulance will be landing in front of the crowds during the day.
They’ll be over 100 exhibits and stalls, including charities, emergency vehicles old and new, plus chances to interact and get involved with the many 999 and support teams. There’s lots of chances to ‘have a go’, including rowing on the lake, a climbing wall, finding your way through a confined space tunnel and much more. The fun doesn’t stop there either, as they’ll be boat rides, pony rides, a fun fair and a variety of food and drink stands.
Children who dress up of one of their emergency heroes can enter the fancy dress competition with the chance of winning a £50 toy voucher. Full details on the Rescue Day website.
