Excitement builds for Rescue Day

by | 26 June 2018 | Community Event, Gainsborough

Excitement is building for this year’s Rescue Day at 7 Lakes Country Park, Crowle, near Scunthorpe, which is being held on Saturday 7th July.  999 and rescue teams from across the region are set to descend on 7 Lakes for the annual emergency services day. The event, which first started in 2008, showcases the excellent work that our emergency teams do and allows for the general public to engage with the staff and volunteers who serve and protect us around the clock. It is the biggest of its kind in the country and attracts crowds in the thousands.

The day is one for all the family and is an action-packed mix of live fire, rescue, rail and water displays and involves fire, police, ambulance, water rescue, road and rail agencies and more.

The legendary Red Devils parachute display team are due to make another spectacular entrance to Rescue Day again this year, by performing a parachute landing into the main lake and will be picked up by a flotilla of rescue boat teams. Plus, everyone’s favourite furry water rescue dogs from Pete Lewin Newfoundlands will be showing off their skills in the lake.

As well as all the high octane displays there will be lots of opportunities to meet and talk to emergency services staff, see vehicles and equipment and take part in interactive displays.

The day is organised by a team comprising of frontline fire, ambulance and police personnel from across the North Lincolnshire area and beyond who volunteer their time to run the event.
