The Emergency Services Family Fun Day – which in 2017 was held in Kings Park, Bournemouth – provides a platform for all of the ‘blue light’ services to demonstrate their appliances, equipment and skills to the public in a safe, controlled environment.
This great family day out is organised by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, Dorset Police and South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. It is also supported by many local organisations.
Held every summer, the day involves a wide range of charitable organisations which are integral to the work of the emergency services.
Since its inception in 2010, the day has raised over £12,000 for the Fire Fighters Charity and SafeWise, the education charity which runs interactive safety centres in Bournemouth and Weymouth.
