Meet firefighters as Devizes hosts Services Day

This Is Wiltshire: Meet firefighters at the Services Day in Hillworth Park, Devizes Meet firefighters at the Services Day in Hillworth Park, Devizes

Devizes firefighters are supporting a community event being held at Hillworth Park tomorrow.

A range of organisations will be at the park in Queens Road between 10am and 3pm, offering visitors advice and information about their services.

As well as Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service, there will be stands from agencies including Wiltshire Police, St John Ambulance, Wiltshire Air Ambulance, the Bobby Van Trust, Wiltshire Council, Community First, Aster Housing Association, the Army and Combat Stress.

Firefighter Dan Burton said: “The Devizes Neighbourhood Policing Team came up with the idea of a Services Day for the town, and it’s a great opportunity for us to go along and meet with local people.

"Children can have a look in the fire engine, and we’ll be advising on home fire safety and road safety – you can even ask us about becoming an on-call firefighter!”

Will they be offering visitors advice and information about when they won't be available to save lives due to their industrial action/strike schedule?

No they wont.....they will be moaning as usual about their pay and pension whilst sat on their fat lazy ars@$ whilst eating donuts. They would do anything for a day off or use the strike as an excuse to carry on with a second job. If anyone sees them, ask them how many people actually voted for strike action?
