THE Emergency Services Family Fun Day is moving to Bournemouth this year.

Following two successful years at Poole Park, the free family event - organised by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS), is making the move to Kings Park, Bournemouth, for 2017.

Police, paramedics and the air ambulance will be joining firefighters on the day - which allows all of the 'blue light' services to demonstrate their equipment and skills.

A DWFRS spokesman said: "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 more than £12,000 for the Fire Fighters Charity and SafeWise.

The free event is scheduled for Kings Park, Bournemouth, July 22, 11am-4pm.
