Emergency Services Open Day
16 September 2018 - 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
On Sunday 16 September we will be opening up Police and Fire HQ in Portishead to give local people the opportunity to see first-hand how the emergency services and partners work together to keep our communities safe.
This unique event will showcase the work of those who serve across Avon and Somerset. Beyond the Constabulary and Avon Fire and Rescue Service this will include Mountain Rescue, HM Coastguard, British Red Cross, RNLI and Wessex 4 X 4 amongst many others.
Visitors are set to enjoy an action packed day with displays from the Avon and Somerset’s Police Dog, Mounted and Firearms sections and car cutting and animal rescue demonstrations from Avon Fire and Rescue.
Members of the public will also have the chance to learn more about those who volunteer in communities including Specials, Cadets and Neighbourhood watch.
There is plenty on offer for younger visitors including a treasure hunt and an opportunity to work alongside the Major Crime Team and become a ‘young detective’ for the day.
There will be a variety of food outlets and picnic areas, and visitors are also invited to enjoy woodland walks around the grounds.
TICKETS – Available HERE – WILL BE RELEASED ON 8TH AUGUST AT 1PM AND 28TH AUGUST AT 7PM
