Thousands are expected to attend the popular Emergency Services Show, which takes place later this month at Roundhay Park in Leeds.

On July 29 visitors will fill the park’s Soldiers Playing Field, when they can see police, fire and ambulance crews alongside the Royal British Legion, local councils, and armed forces – including the British Army.

The event, which runs from 11am to 4pm, will also have police dogs, the fire service band, fairground rides, donkeys, craft stalls, food, and vintage police and fire vehicles.

All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the Fire Fighters Charity.

“The Emergency Services Show is a great opportunity to showcase what our services do in a fun way” said Sarah Goodall, watch manager and charity representative at West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service (WYFRS).

“It’s also a chance for us to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity, which provides valuable support to members of the fire service community.

“The show promises to have something for everyone with emergency service vehicles, rides, stalls and much more. There will be opportunities to learn about how each service works and local councils will be there to highlight a number of interesting projects they’ve been working on.”

Wakefield Council will be attending and sharing the water safety video they launched recently. Also the Yorkshire & Humber Regional Cyber Crime Team will be there with their state of the art Cyber Community Engagement Van ‘Cyber Blue Line’.

Sarah added: “Families can also enjoy donkey rides and grab some delicious food from one of the many vendors. This is an amazing chance to get a close look at those who serve our communities every day, while having fun with friends and family.”

Entry is £2 for adults, £1 for children with free entry for under 4s. For more information visit
