999 emergency days at Louth area schools

PUPILS from three local primary schools found out about the work of the emergency services during 999 Afternoons.

The events at North Cockerington, Legbourne and Grainthorpe were attended by ambulance crews, firefighters, lifeboat crews and lifeguards.

They were organised by 
PCSOs from Louth Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team.

PCSO Sally Read said: “The children were separated into four groups and spent 30 minutes with each service in turn. They received a safety talk on a relevant topic such as stranger danger, starting fires, or water safety, and then were able to have a look round the emergency vehicles.

“The sessions have been a fantastic opportunity for young people 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 go to North Somercotes Fire and Rescue, East Lindsey Fire Protection Service, East Midlands Ambulance Service, Skegness Lifeguards and Peter Barnard from the RNLI.
