Moor hosted its 5th annual 999 Fun day

Sunday 22nd April 2018

Thousands of visitors enjoyed the free activities and chatting with representatives from our uniformed support emergency services from road safety to water rescue, ambulance and police.


The South Yorkshire Water Rescue dogs proved a very popular attraction. Vintage and current modern emergency vehicles and systems were on display plus there was a Bouncy Castle, Fire Engine rides and the opportunity to experience the smoke house as well as to learn valuable lessons about how to act in the event of a fire.


Amanda Philips, Centre Manager for The Moor said: “Our 999 Fun Day manages to balance between being fun as well as informative. There are not many opportunities to have a good chat to the people who actually deliver our emergency services in an informal and relaxed setting, other than when we are actually using them! This event was also a great way to celebrate their work and to thank them.”
