Description

The second release of tickets has now sold out. The next and final ticket release will take place on Friday 30 August at 7pm.

On Sunday 15 September we will be opening up Police and Fire HQ in Portishead to give local people the opportunity to see first-hand how the emergency services and partners work together to keep our communities safe. Please find out more about the event on our event website https://emergencyservicesopenday.co.uk/

This unique event will showcase the work of those who serve across Avon and Somerset. Beyond the Constabulary and Avon Fire and Rescue Service this will include Mountain Rescue, HM Coastguard, British Red Cross, RNLI and Wessex 4 x 4 amongst many others

Visitors are set to enjoy an action packed day with displays from the Avon and Somerset’s Police Dog, Mounted and Firearms sections and car cutting and animal rescue demonstrations from Avon Fire and Rescue.

Members of the public will also have the chance to learn more about those who volunteer in communities including Specials, Cadets and Neighbourhood watch.

Our popular Young Detective activity will return this year offering our younger visitors the opportunity to join our Major Crime Team to investigate a case.

There will be a variety of food outlets and picnic areas, and visitors are also invited to enjoy woodland walks around the grounds.

The Open Day is a fully ticketed event. The first release of tickets will take place at the end of July. We will publicise the date of this, and further ticket releases here https://emergencyservicesopenday.co.uk/ and
