Emergency services and their key partners came together for a live demonstration of how they work together to respond to a road traffic collision (RTC).

Located at Tower Festival headland on Blackpool’s promenade next to the Comedy Carpet on 6th August 2023, the public were able to watch police officers be first on scene at a staged RTC. They were then joined by partners from Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service and North West Ambulance Services as they narrated their roles and responsibilities in dealing with the collision.

Other partners involved in the event included Blackpool, Fylde And Preston Advanced Motorists, South Lancashire Advanced Motorcyclists (both representing IAM RoadSmart), Blood Bikes, National Highways, and Lancashire Partnership For Road Safety.

Paul Regan, Neighbouring Policing Sergeant said: “RTC’s involve a lot of partnership working – a lot more than the general public may initially think.

The Alive to Drive event allows people to get a rare insight into the level of detail and teamwork that goes on between emergency services at the scene of a collision.”

Clare Burscough, Road Safety Coordinator for Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said: “The Alive to Drive event is a great opportunity for the public to meet their local emergency services and learn about all aspects of road safety. We are delighted to have the support from so many partners for this event.”
