Emergency teams showcase skills

Officers from Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team will be showcasing how police help keep communities safe at this year’s Emergency Services Day.

Visitors to the free event can peek behind the scenes to get a closer look at the work of police, ambulance, fire and rescue, air ambulance and many more services.

There will be arena displays, a simulated road traffic accident, fire engines to explore and a mock cave for mountain rescue volunteers to show how they save lives in remote locations such as the Peak District.

Police will be hosting a stall and chatting to visitors about crime prevention and what operations they have been involved in.

The free Emergency Services Day takes place at Buxton’s Pavilion Gardens from 10.30am to 4.15pm on Sunday, June 9.

It also showcases the other organisations that work with emergency services in the Peak District and High Peak, including mountain rescue, cave rescue, the Search and Rescue Dogs Associations, the air ambulance, Community First Responders, Red Cross Fire and Emergency Support,
