Festival of Rescue returns to Lincolnshire this September

This autumn Lincolnshire residents will be able not only to see but t take part in live rescue demonstrations from fire crews across the UK.

From today professionals are invited to register to take part in events staged by firefighters and specialist rescue teams who’ll be coming to the county in September to compete in an annual rescue competition.

The United Kingdom Rescue Organisation challenge for 2023 will be hosted at various sites in Lincoln and the surrounding area for only the second time, and will see participants take part in challenges involving car extrication, water rescue, high rope rescue and more.

Events will take place from 14 to 16 September, returning to the county after a successful inaugural visit in 2012, where the water rescue challenge was introduced for the first time.

Mark Baxter, Chief Fire Officer for Lincolnshire, said: “Fire and rescue services really enjoy this event and I’m delighted we are hosting it again this year. It’s a great way for professionals to learn and practice their skills, knowledge and techniques that can only improve the way that we respond to our communities. More than this though, it’s a great way for the public to see firefighters in action in a safe environment, learn more about the role and to talk to us about any concerns they have.”

Information about the event for the public and participants is now available on the Festival of Rescue Home Page with registration opening on 2 May.
