‘Blue light’ show enthralls crowds

THOUSANDS flocked to last weekend’s Emergency Services Show at the Birkenshaw headquarters of West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service. 

Crews from fire and rescue, police and ambulance staged demonstrations and exhibited equipment. Crowds watched as firefighters set up a mock road traffic collision and cut ‘casualties’ from a car, the aerial ladder showed its capabilities, above, and search and rescue dogs demonstrated their skills.

A number of market stalls and charities filled the site on Saturday, as well as a large fairground.

Station Commander Dom Furby said: “I would like to thank everybody involved in organising the event and everybody who attended on the day.

“We hope the event will have raised more than £7,000 for The Fire Fighters Charity, Parkinson’s UK, The Salvation Army and Martin House Children’s Hospice.”
