Cheshire Police and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service will be hosting an action-packed day at Cheshire Police Headquarters.
The fun filled event, which is free for all the community takes place between 11am and 4pm on Sunday 17 May.
There will be interactive displays and exhibitions that will give you the chance to see the complex nature of the work we do and how the two emergency services work together to protect the community.
Staff from both emergency services will also be on hand to answer questions and give advice on staying safe and preventing crime.
Chief Constable Simon Byrne said:
This will be my first open day here in Cheshire and it will give me the opportunity to show you what we do, from local community policing through to tackling organised crime and dealing with riots. You will be able to see how officers and staff from the police and fire service work together to protect the community and reinforce the message that we’re here for our communities.
Chief Fire Officer Paul Hancock added,
This is the seventh Joint emergency Service Open Day and it’s been very well attended in the past. This year we hope it will once again give the public an insight into the work we do, but more importantly help to educate people around the dangers of fire and about driving safely on our roads.
Vintage and modern fire and police vehicles will be showcased and there will be displays in the main arena throughout the day. Fire and police search and rescue dogs will also be in attendance.
For children there will be free activities including face painting, a climbing wall, craft area and circus workshop as well as a treasure hunt to keep them occupied. Refreshments, including hot and cold food, will also be available to buy. The address for the Joint emergency Open Day is:

Parking is available around the site from 11am to 4pm.
