Two Jersey schoolchildren, with designs on promoting the 2013 Emergency Services Open Day later this month, will be special guests at Police and Fire HQ next week, after their entries in a poster competition were selected to promote the event.
Five-year-old Daniel Frost, from JCG Prep, and 10-year-old Matilda Le Boutillier, from Helvetia School, created their winning designs in a competition run with local schools to promote the States of Jersey Police, Fire & Rescue Services and the Ambulance Service Open Day, being held at Rouge Bouillon, St Helier, on Sunday, September 29th.
All money raised on the day will be split between three charities, one nominated by each of the emergency services.
Both winners will be heading to the station on Monday to meet the Chiefs of all three services and get to take a tour of a fire engine, as well as being set some challenges for the day of the event.
The Open Day itself will be an exciting and entertaining mixture of demonstrations, displays, exhibitions, and activities for all ages.
From a joint emergency response to a simulated road traffic collision, to Police Dog displays, Tower rescues and Paramedic demonstrations, the day will also give visitors an opportunity to see life behind the front-line, including the Police custody suite and Police Control Room.
The Fire and Rescue Service's ˜White Watch' are already starting to plan the rescue scenarios they are going to perform; although, who's going to play the part of the ˜damsel in distress' has yet to be agreed!
And for the first time there will be a home-baking competition called Operation Bakewell, where all officers and staff from the emergency services, as well as any members of the public, will be invited to make a cake and will be judged on their baking skills by a panel of judges including our competition winners.
The cakes will all then be sold to visitors and the money raised given to the nominated charities.
Entry forms can be downloaded at the bottom of the page.
