In an emergency always call 999

Emergency Services Day to take place at Buxton's Pavilion Gardens

Posted on 23rd May 2014

Residents are invited to attend the upcoming Emergency Services Display Day to gain an insight into the work of the police, ambulance and fire and rescue services.

Officers from the Buxton and Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Team will be showcasing how police help to keep the communities safe during the free event on Sunday, June 8.

The policing team will be hosting a stall at the Pavilion Gardens Promenade in Buxton and will be chatting to passes by about the steps that they can take to protect themselves and their property from criminals.

The officers will be giving visitors a closer look behind the scenes to see what operations and initiatives they have been involved in to help keep the local neighbourhoods safe.

This includes Operation Jericho which focuses on tackling speeding and nuisance drivers on roads in Buxton and surrounding areas.

The 17th Emergency Services Display Day also showcases the other organisations that work with emergency services in the Peak District and High Peak, including mountain rescue, cave rescue, the Search and Rescue Dogs Associations, the air ambulance, Community First Responders, Red Cross Fire and Emergency Support, Neighbourhood Watch and many more.

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.

Children attending the event will have the opportunity to try out a mock cave, climb on board a fire engine and also explore the Smoke House tent.

The free Emergency Services Day takes place at Buxton’s Pavilion Gardens from 10.30am to 4.15pm on Sunday, June 8.

To speak to your local Safer Neighbourhood Team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
