Emergency Services to host open day

First event of its kind in county next Saturday

Roscommon Fire Station will play host to the inaugural Emergency Services Open Day on Saturday, May 6th.

  On the day the public will be invited to attend and meet members from An Garda Síochána, the Fire Service, Ambulance Service and The Civil Defence. It will also be an opportunity to see the Garda vehicles, ambulances and Fire Brigades up close. The RSA roadshow will also be present with their car and bike simulators as well as their roll-over car, which will demonstrate just what happens when a vehicle is involved in an accident.

  It is also hoped that the Garda Mounted and Garda Dog units will also be in attendance and it is also hoped that the Garda helicopter will perform a ‘hover over’ on the day.

  Members of the public, both young and old are welcome to come along on the Saturday to discover just what the emergency services in Co. Roscommon do and to see some of the resources available to them.

  There will be face painting and other entertainment for children on the day it is hoped that the event will provide the public with an opportunity to meet the ‘human face’ behind the county’s emergency services.

  The event will take place from 11 am to 3 pm on Saturday, May 6th at Roscommon Fire Station. All are welcome to attend.
