Hastings firefighters are delighted to be taking part in the town’s emergency services day, being organised by the RNLI.
The annual event attracts much interest and excitement from residents and this year Hastings’ RNLI is organising what promises to be one of the biggest ever Emergency Services Day that the town has ever seen.
Station Manager Paul Way said: “No-one likes to make that call but if you ever need to dial 999 then it is likely that one of the organisations represented at the Hastings Emergency Services Day will come to your aid.
“Our Hastings crews are delighted to be taking part and we will be displaying our skills and dedication to the public.
"On the day we will be available to speak to anyone about fire and safety related queries.
"It is important part of our job to take part in events like this in order to meet with members of the public."
More than twenty-two organisations have so far confirmed they will be coming, including of course the RNLI, East Sussex Fire and Rescue, Sussex Police, and the South East Coast Ambulance Service.
But it’s not only the big organisations that will be represented, local voluntary groups including Hastings Voluntary Lifeguards, Beachy Head Chaplins, Sussex 4x4 Response and Search Dogs Sussex will also there, all demonstrating to the public the emergency services they provide.
Hastings Lifeboat Operations Manager, Peter Adams said. “This is going to be a fantastic day out for all the family. We’ll have organisations representing literally hundreds of emergency responders from throughout Kent and Sussex, and we invite everyone to come along to see just what they do.’
This free event will take place on Sunday 14th September at the Stade Open Space and Hastings Lifeboat Station, from 10.00am until 4.00pm in the afternoon.
