North Walsham youngsters learn about 999 services

A group of youngsters learned more about the emergency services at a special 999 event at North Walsham fire station.

The event, organised by local charity The Benjamin Foundation, saw the children meet officers from North Walsham Safer Neighbourhood Team along with members of the fire and ambulance service, Norfolk County Council road safety officer and even spend time with police dogs and their handlers from Ministry of Defence.

The youngsters took a look around different emergency response vehicles including a police car, a fire engine and an old fashioned ambulance while they took their opportunity to ask questions about the important roles that the emergency services play to keep their neighbourhood safe.

PCSO Imogen Palmer said: 'The day was great fun and gave the youngsters an opportunity to meet emergency service staff face-to-face and ask any questions they had about what the emergency services do.'
