26/10/16 Woodford Valley Community Emergency Plan Working Group. Open and Training Day

posted Oct 17, 2016, 10:12 AM by Rob Macdonald

On Saturday 22nd October we will be holding a combined open and training day at the village hall in conjunction with Serve On and with the assistance of the Fire and Rescue Service.  Between 10am and 1pm.  There will be a fire engine on the playing field opposite the hall together with a display of some of the emergency equipment that will shortly be available to the community thanks to the generous grant we have obtained from Scottish & Southern Electricity.  There will also be a couple of training rigs where you can practice flood proofing your house.  Meanwhile, in the hall there will be displays and explanations of Serve On's emergency assistance capabilities, the Community Emergency Plan and ways you can help yourselves and others in an emergency.

Between 2pm and 4pm the fire engine will have returned to its duties, but you are still welcome to come along and watch or join in as, with the assistance of Serve On, we practice/make fools of ourselves with the equipment and the training rigs.

If your children would like to climb on a fire engine and you would like to learn more about what resources are available and how the community can work together in an emergency, please join us. (we are sure the fireman won't mind if you climb on the fire engine too!)
