FAMILIES can learn about the work of the emergency services at a 999 day.

The event, at Beachlands, on Hayling seafront, will see police, firefighters, paramedics, coastguards and first responders join together on Sunday to highlight what they do day to day.

Rosie Raines is the co-ordinator for Hayling First Responders. The volunteers provide emergency medical response on the island 24 hours a day.

She said: ‘This is our third 999 day and everyone is really looking forward to it.

‘We talk through what we do with families and bandage up children and use some fake blood.

‘The police demonstrate fingerprinting. It’s great fun.’

Other organisations taking part are the Blood Runners, Hampshire Search and Rescue Dogs, St John Ambulance and the Safer Neighbourhoods Team.

Entry is free and it runs from 10am to 4pm.
