Emergency Training Exercise in Scarborough

Emergency Training Exercise in Scarborough

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 12:50pm 25th May 2016.

Scarborough's public is being told not to worry if they see a lot of blue flashing lights this evening.

The fire service, police, ambulance and others are doing a training exercise in the area around Peasholm Park and the North Bay Railway.

They will be simulating a transport-related incident, but they're emphasising it won't be dangerous and nobody will be at risk.

It will take place between 6.45 and 8.30pm..

Scarborough Fire Station Manager, Andy Blades, said:

"When you get a number of emergency services vehicles in a location, people naturally think that there's a serious incident and people might be at risk. We just wanted to reinforce the fact that it is an exercise and a training event to test the emergency services.

"If members of the public do see it, we'd like them to allow the emergency services to get involved in the exercise and we don't really want onlookers to detract from that. While we welcome some interest, if people could just avoid that immediate area we would appreciate that".
