Barrow Emergency Services Day to take place on Sunday

[A] number of Emergency Services will be coming together in Barrow to hold a family fun day this weekend.

Members of the public will be able to speak to members of the 999 services, find out what they do and how they do it, at the event on Sunday September 10th.

Police officers will be joined by fire and ambulance crews as well as the likes of Bay Search and Rescue, both Duddon and Ulverston Inshore Rescue teams, and the Coastguard.

There will be demonstrations, vehicles to climb aboard, police drones to look at, and some police dogs to say hello to, as well as much more.

Alongside emergency workers, other services such as Guide Dog’s, the Owl Sanctuary, Neighbourhood Watch and Victim Support will be present.

Superintendent for South Cumbria Rob O’Connor said: “Last year’s Emergency Service Day was a fantastic event which saw thousands of people enjoy a good day out. This is another opportunity for people to come and meet us, see what we do, and have some fun. It’s also a great way for us to engage with our community and I’d encourage as many people as possible to come and meet us.”

The free event will take place at Barrow Police Station, Andrews Way, on Sunday September 10th, 11am – 4pm.
