Summer of Rescue comes to Willenhall Carnival
Our second Summer of Rescue event took place on Saturday June 11 at the wonderful Willenhall Carnival, with over 6,000 local people enjoying the festivities.
Local crews demonstrated important vehicle extrication skills that will also be on show at this autumn’s Festival of Rescue, as well as sharing important fire and road safety advice. Visitors were also able to take a look around one of our fire appliances and our fire bike.
The West Midlands Road Casualty Reduction Team (RCRT) utilised our innovative Virtual Reality equipment to educate future road users on how to stay safe on road.
Andrew Rainey, Willenhall Station Commander said; “We were pleased to see so many people at the event who were able to learn about our important rescue capabilities. We had around a thousand visitors over the course of the day who were able to gain a better understanding of the wider role of the FRS.”
“Public engagement is of course a really important part of our work, and so we took every opportunity to provide advice and information to help make the communities of Willenhall safer, stronger and healthier.”
