Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Road Safety Day at Sandyford Fire Station

19/11/2010

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service are hosting ‘Road Safety Day’ for members of the public at Sandyford Community Fire Station on November 25th as part of Road Safety Week.

"Firefighters will be available on the day to answer any questions alongside the police and cycle safety."

Risk Reduction Officer Jim Taaffe

The event starts at the fire station from 2pm and runs until 7pm with activities throughout the day including testing out your driving skills on a Scalextric set, competitions, road safety advice from Staffordshire Police and road traffic collision demonstrations by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Risk Reduction Officer Jim Taaffe said: “We find we have an increase in road traffic collisions once the dark nights set in and we are continually trying to increase road safety awareness to try and avoid such horrific incidents.

“Its not just people in cars, but motorcyclists and cyclists need to be aware of the dangers as well and make sure they’re taking the steps to stay safe and that is what this event is all about.

“Firefighters will be available on the day to answer any questions alongside the police and cycle safety. The event is also an opportunity for anyone who hasn’t already seen the brand new community fire station to drop in and have a look around.”

The Sandyford Community Fire Station off Reginald Mitchell Way in Sandyford went live on Friday October 29th.
