Youngsters from two primary schools in Louth have experienced first hand the work of the emergency services that help keep them safe as part of a ‘999 day’.

Pupils from St Michael’s School and Kidgate Primary Academy welcomed ambulance, fire, lifeguard and lifeboat crews to Kidgate as part of the day organised by PCSOs from Louth Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team.

The children, aged between five and seven, spent time with each emergency service and were able to have a look round the different vehicles.

PCSO Andrea Cave said: “The sessions have been a fantastic opportunity for youngsters to receive important safety advice and to learn about how these vital people, some of whom are volunteers, keep them safe every day.”

Special thanks went to Binbrook Fire and Rescue, East Midlands Ambulance Service and the RNLI and more sessions are planned for other schools in the area later in the summer.
