Manchester’s finest: Hard work of emergency services showcased at Trafford Centre

The brave men and women of Manchester’s emergency services will be showcasing the lifesaving, crime-stopping, community-protecting work they do at the Trafford Centre tomorrow.

This annual event, hosted at the Orient Car Park between 10am and 4pm, brings together emergency services teams from all across the North-West to showcase the fantastic work they do. 

The last Emergency Services Day, or ‘999’ day, was attended by 10,000 visitors who wanted to experience a day in the life of the emergencManchestery services.  

Richard Paxton, General Manager the Intu Trafford Centre, said: “This event gets better and better each year. 

“It’s a fantastic display of emergency resources available within the North-West and shows what a fantastic job they all do on a daily basis.” 

Intu, the leading owner and manager of prime regional shopping centres in the UK is hosting this free event for families across the North West for the fifth year running.  

With more than 400million visitors each year, Intu establishments see almost three quarters of the population visiting their destinations each year. 

With real life demonstrations, live rescue missions and drink driving simulators, it’s both an educational and enjoyable day for the family.

Mr Paxton added: “It’s great fun for the whole family with something for everyone. Dads can gaze at superb police cars whilst youngsters can ride in the fire engine!”

With approximately 45 services on show, including Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service and Greater Manchester Police, families will get to experience the daily struggles of the heroes in these services.

The best police horses and dogs will be making an appearance alongside a cadets climbing wall open to children.

For a free day of fun and adventure, make sure you head to the Trafford Centre this weekend.
