Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Fun had by all at Emergency Services Day

19/7/2017

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) had a fantastic Emergency Services Day on Sunday July 16 at Queens Park, Longton, engaging with the community we serve.

“It was fantastic to have the opportunity to spend the day with other emergency service workers and have the chance to speak to lots of people from the local community. These events are really valuable to us as they enable us to show the community what we do as well as giving them important safety advice."

Chief Fire Officer Becci Bryant

Volunteers, cadets, support staff and firefighters from Hanley and Longton spent the day speaking to residents, giving safety advice, telling people about the Service’s Cadets+ programme and signing children up to the Service’s Welephant Club.

Wele himself made a grand appearance to meet the community. Members of the public were pleased to see an aerial ladder platform display and a road traffic collision demonstration performed by the cadets.

The Service also took the opportunity to share important safety advice about the seasonal Flames Aren’t Campaign, which aims to prevent young people from setting fires in the open deliberately. The Flames Aren’t Games photo frame proved especially popular at the event and those that attended were also given a chance to use the Service’s first ever Snapchat filter to show their support for the campaign.

Chief Fire Officer Becci Bryant said: “It was fantastic to have the opportunity to spend the day with other emergency service workers and have the chance to speak to lots of people from the local community.

“I would like to thank everyone who came to see us on Sunday and joined us in celebrating the hard working emergency services of Staffordshire.”
