The event has become a favourite in the local calendar and gives the opportunity for visitors to meet members of the emergency services and get an up-close look at 999 response vehicles. A full timetable of scenarios and demonstrations run throughout the weekend which gives members of the community the chance to see the work of the emergency services.
