A local nursery invited local youngsters to meet representatives from the emergency services at a free special event in West Bridgford.
The Superhero Day at Hollies Day Nursery was attended by over 100 children and their families, who were encouraged to dress up as their favourite superhero and chat to local police officers, firemen and volunteers from the Trent District Community First Responders.
Drew Pike, owner of Hollies Day Nurseries, said: “We were delighted that so many people came to the event and were able to find out more about the amazing work our emergency services do.
“It’s so important that young children are given the confidence to deal with medical traumas, such as being able to call 999 or open their front door to a first responder.
“We have been working hard over the past few years to teach children simple strategies to cope.
“We decided to hold this event to share our knowledge with families who don’t attend our nursery and hope that those who came along found it useful.”
As well as the chance to look inside the emergency vehicles and try on some of the equipment, visitors were given the opportunity to have a go at CPR using the training manikins and find out more about personal safety from Nottinghamshire Police.
