ABC Wednesday - E



Last Sunday was ESCAPE Day in our town. ESCAPE is Emergency Services Community Awareness and Promotion Event. Dozens of representative from local Emergency Services including the local Rescue Hovercraft, RNLI, HM Coastguard, Police, Fire and Rescue and Ambulance were on hand to give demonstrations and advice. I had forgotten all about it until I happened to glance out of my windows and saw this.

The weather was beautiful and there were lots of people taking an interest in it all and there was plenty to see. So pleasing to know that we don't just take our Emergency Services for granted.



Thanks to Mrs Denise Nesbitt and her team who host ABC Wednesday. For more looks at the letter D, please click here.

The only time that I have ever seen anything like that it was for real and was quite scary. Nice to watch it all and know that no-one is actually in any danger.

Our sons and daughter-in-law have sent us pictures of the emergency firecrew in their part of the country where forest fires are very prevalent and where they have established a heliocopter base. They have hoses, pumps and sprinklers all over their property and I was very impressed with their devotion and preparedness.

This is very important that each one of us know how and where to escape if there is an emergency. Training does help a lot. Thanks for the post!

I have seen several of these exercises. They're very dramatic. The most dramatic one we saw was when we were on the ferry going to the Isle of Wight.

Pam said...

Oh I could sit and watch them all day. Thanks for posting about them. It takes a special person to do their job doesn't it.

Emergency rescue service workers are definitely unsung heroes. That is a great shot of them in action.

I am having internet connection problems still, sorry for the long absence. Usually about time I sit down to visit everyone I lose my connection.
