Fermanagh and Omagh Community Safety Partnership, in partnership with key emergency services providers, is hosting an Emergency Services Day to highlight and celebrate the work of the emergency services across the district.

The free event will take place at the Broad Meadow, Enniskillen on Sunday 22 May from 1.00 pm until 5.00 pm and will be officially opened by Councillor Keith Elliott, Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP.

Speaking about the event, Councillor Elliott said;  Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP is delighted to be working with the emergency services sector to once again highlight the invaluable service they provide across the district, much of which goes unseen and unheralded.

I believe that it is important that the community is aware of the importance of the work that they do. Collaboration between the PCSP and partner organisations to promote community safety and education to the public is integral to the role of the PCSP

I would encourage as many people as possible to come along to this very worthwhile day.”

Visitors will have the opportunity to see at close quarters, the tremendous work undertaken by the emergency service in the district with demonstrations from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, North West Mountain rescue Team, the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service, Northern Ireland Ambulance Service Trust and a special display by the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Canine Display team.

PSNI Constable Wayne Robinson said;  “We are delighted to be working with the Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) to showcase some of the work we, and our colleagues within the emergency services, do on a day and daily basis.”

Subject to operational requirements, the Coastguard and PSNI helicopters will also be in attendance on the day.
