In emergencies call 999

Emergency Services Show comes back for 2019!

On Saturday 13th July West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (WYFRS) will be welcoming back the Emergency Services Show at our headquarters in Birkenshaw, from 11.30am – 4.30pm.

The fantastic family fun day will give crowds a taste of what life is like in the emergency services, with everything from mock-up crash rescues to dramatic line rescue demonstrations from the fire service.

There will also be the chance to meet the police horses and our urban search and rescue dog Eddie.

WYFRS will have a whole host of specialist fire engines and equipment on display so you can see what being a firefighter is really like!

There will be stalls selling crafts and goods, little Freddie the fire engine, donkey rides and music from the WYFRS band.

There will also be entertainment from Calderdale based charity, Total Awareness Promotions (TAP), who will be playing games and keeping the crowds occupied throughout the day.

Fairground rides will be onsite for the thrill seekers, whilst catering outlets and a fully licensed bar will offer a variety of food and drink.

The proceeds of this year’s event will go to The Fire Fighters Charity.

Chief Fire Officer, John Roberts, said:  “We’re delighted to be bringing this event back for what promises to be another fantastic year and we look forward to welcoming the public to our headquarters here in Birkenshaw.

“It’s a good opportunity for everyone to learn more about the emergency services, while having lots of fun- and raising money for a brilliant charity.

“As always, this event wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of our staff so I’d like to thank everyone who has been working behind the scenes to make this wonderful event happen.”
