Family fun on offer at free emergency services open day

30 August 2017

​The vital work of the fire, police and ambulance services will be celebrated at a free family event raising money for Northamptonshire Emergency Services Cadets (NESC).

From 11am to 3pm on Saturday 9 September NESC will host an open day at Mereway Fire Station, Northampton, complete with emergency service vehicles, emergency drill demonstrations, games, activities and food.

Founded in late 2016 in a joint partnership between the county’s fire, police and ambulance cadets, NESC is open to teenagers aged 13-18 and is a registered charity.

Units meet across Northamptonshire, offering young people the chance to take an active role in supporting the work of fire, police and ambulance staff.

Supporting the emergency services

Skills cadets learn include first aid, basic law and officer safety training and basic fire-fighting techniques. They also take part in disaster training operations, attend community events and sports fixtures, march in Remembrance Day parades, help with test purchase operations and more.

The open day will take place from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 9 September. Entry is free and all are welcome.
