Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service will be bringing its Emergency Services Family Fun Day to Kings Park, Bournemouth on Saturday 22 July from 11am to 4pm.

Following two very successful years at Poole Park, the free family event is making the move to Kings Park, Bournemouth to help the emergency services engage with new families and communities.

Kings Park is situated just north of Boscombe town centre, next to AFC Bournemouth, where there is plenty of parking available.

As in previous years, the Family Fun Day will be presented with Dorset Police, South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and local education charity SafeWise.

The Emergency Services Family Fun Day provides a platform for all of the ‘blue light’ services to demonstrate their appliances, equipment and skills in a safe and controlled environment.

You and your family will be able to meet some of the great people who help to keep your community safe, with many activities and demonstrations for everybody to enjoy.

See how Dorset Police use their highly trained police dogs, their specialist Marine Unit and their new drone fleet to tackle crime across Dorset. Meet paramedics and find out more about the local Air Ambulance. Learn how the Fire and Rescue Service rescues animals large and small. Experience how dangerous putting water onto a chip pan can be and see why installing sprinklers is the best way to stop a house fire in its tracks and so much more.

Since its inception in 2010, the Emergency Services Family Fun Day has raised over £12,000 for the Fire Fighters Charity and SafeWise and promises to get the school summer holidays off to the perfect start.
