Cheshire Police & Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service Community Engagement Day

On Sunday 22nd September 2013, Cheshire Police & Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service are holding a free "Community Engagement Day" from 11am to 4pm at the Cheshire Police Headquarters at Oakmere Road, Winsford, CW7 2UA.

This year's event will be packed with interactive displays and exhibitions highlighting the specialist work undertaken by the emergency services and giving the people of Cheshire the opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes.

Budding detectives will have the chance to solve a cyber crime in the exhibition hall, piecing together evidence to help find a missing child; and would-be firefighters will have the opportunity to investigate how the fire started.

Meanwhile, over in the main display area, officers from Roads Policing will be joining up with Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service and St John Ambulance to demonstrate how the emergency services work together when responding to road traffic collisions.

A range of children's rides, face painters, magicians and more will also be dotted around Cheshire Police headquarters in Winsford.

Visitors will be able to tour the Tactical Training Centre where they will have the chance to watch practical public order and petrol bomb demonstrations.

Assistant Chief Constable Janette McCormick said: "We encourage residents from across the county to attend this unique event and learn about some of the work that Cheshire Police and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service do to help the people of Cheshire feel safe"
Chief Fire Officer Paul Hancock said "This is a great opportunity for members of the public to meet our firefighters and other safety staff and find out more about their role in the local community"
The event has received financial support by way of a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.
