Rangers at the ready for Emergency Services Display & Fun Day, Sun June 14

Firefighter and Ranger Fiona Draisey train for wildfires
Peak District National Park rangers will be joining forces with Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service to demonstrate the work of the moorland Fire Operations Group on Sunday June 14 at the 12th annual Emergency Services Display and Fun Day in Buxton’s Pavilion Gardens.

Fiona Draisey, Gordon Danks, Tom Lewis, Terry Page and Kevin Thomson will show how national park Field Service staff act as vital co-ordinators when wildfires break out on remote locations, working with six fire and rescue services all over the national park.

The Fire Operations Group trains and equips the emergency services to tackle the specialist conditions of moorland fires – far different from the urban fires most firefighters are used to.

The Emergency Services Display and Fun Day is a great FREE family day out, where you can see the work of:

Local Police, Fire and Rescue and Ambulance services, Mountain Rescue, Cave Rescue, Search and Rescue Dogs Association, Red Cross, Air Ambulance, St John Ambulance and First Responders.

Displays will go on throughout the day, including a simulated road traffic accident, a fire call, police demonstration, mountain rescue, and displays by some very special dogs. Children can climb on board a fire engine, sit in a police car, explore a simulated cave, and watch a Fun Team challenge for organisations.

Sunday 14 Jun - 10.30am to 4.15pm. Pavilion Gardens, Buxton,Derbyshire SK17 6XN
