Firefighters will be staging a mock rescue demonstration and sharing road, winter and fire safety advice in Higham Ferrers next week.

Organised by Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS), the event will see a road traffic collision scenario re-enacted in the car park off College Street in Higham Ferrers from 6.30pm on Tuesday (December 12).

Fire crews will use dummies to show how they rescue people from crashed vehicles, with a commentary provided to explain the equipment and techniques used.

NFRS staff will also give spectators advice on road safety, safe winter driving and fire safety, including how to book a free home fire safety check.

The free event will run from 6.30pm to about 8pm on Tuesday in the cark park off College Street, Higham Ferrers, adjacent to the war memorial.
