Firefighters joined forces with blue light colleagues to provide a day of family fun in Gosport on Saturday (March 18).

The annual Safer Gosport Community Day at Gosport Town Hall included entertainment, music and a chance to see emergency vehicles up close.

Free advice was given to residents on keeping themselves and their loved ones safe.

As well as Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service crews, teams from Gosport Borough Council, Hampshire Constabulary, Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and HM Coastguard also demonstrated their skills and passed on advice.

The event was run by Gosport Community Safety Partnership. 

Chris Carter, Chairman of the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority, said: "We were proud to support such a fantastic day. 

"Not only could families enjoy all the entertainment and attractions put on for them, but they also left with important messages and information about how we can all keep each other safer in Gosport."
