We attended a local event called Rescue Day to share with visitors the work we do and why we do it.
The purpose of Rescue Day is to bring together as many rescue services as possible in one place to demonstrate what they do and how they do it. Raising public awareness of safety issues such as the dangers of open waters, road safety, fire prevention, drink / drug driving and general community safety issues, combined with an interesting yet fun day out is the aim of this special day, the largest of its kind in the country.
Some of our staff attended and we took along some of our works vehicles and plant to showcase what we do, why we do it and how we do it. This included for example our forward command vehicle, and one of our mobile variable message signs (VMS) signs which was utilised for various messages throughout the event.
We also took the opportunity to display and talk to visitors about our work keeping the road network operating and educational road safety initiatives such as our IPV No Strikes campaign which is aimed at keeping our Workforce safe through education of road users/customers. This addresses our need to help road users better understand and navigate through roadworks.
This activity forms part of our STEM programme which is supported by our social responsibility policy.
