This weekend, Cheshire Police and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service will be hosting an action-packed day at Cheshire Police Headquarters. After attracting an attendance of 5,000 visitors last year, this event draws the crowds and will have plenty to see and do for parents and for children.
The Cheshire Police and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service Community Engagement Day will be held on Sunday, September 22nd from 11am to 4pm, and is free to attend. The day will feature a whole host of attractions highlighting the specialist skills needed to work for the emergency services.
Chief Constable David Whatton said "The police are often seen on the television - in both dramas and documentaries - but this is your chance to see what we do, from local community policing through to tackling organised crime and dealing with riots. You will be able to see how we work alongside Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service to make sure you are safe and feel safe."
Fire fighters will be demonstrating how times have changed when dealing with a road traffic collision and how complex a road traffic collision can become when involving a range of vehicles.
Chief Fire Officer Paul Hancock said "Cheshire′s fire fighters are trained to deal with a wide range of incidents, and Cheshire Fire Authority continue to invest in new vehicles and equipment to ensure we can support our fire fighters when responding to emergencies."
In addition to the demonstrations, budding detectives will have the chance to solve a cyber crime in the exhibition hall, piecing together evidence to help find a missing child; and you will have the opportunity to find out what it takes to become a fire fighter.ced
