Video: Emergency services simulate car crash rescue in Nottingham

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, EMAS and Nottinghamshire Police showed how they rescue a trapped casualty from a road collision.

The event is part of Nottinghamshire Police’s Deadly Mix campaign, which was launched last year after data showed 263 people were injured or killed in a drink-related road traffic collision in Nottinghamshire between 2018 and 2020.

Over 2,000 posters and 5,000 beermats educating road users on the consequences of drink-driving were distributed to pubs all over Nottinghamshire as part of the campaign, with similar messaging running on the back of Nottingham City Transport buses as part of an advertising campaign.

An event was also held in Nottingham’s Trinity Square, where emergency teams engaged with the public and highlighted the dangers of getting behind the wheel when under the influence of drink or drugs.

@westbridgfordwirenews Saturday 8 April – Nottingjam – Police, fire and ambulance crews are teaming up to give a live demonstration of what happens in a crash to raise awareness about road safety. Old Market Square in Nottingham was cordoned off on (Saturday, 8 April) for the demonstration at approximately 2 pm. The emergency teams will be showing what happens when they are called to a crash, how they help those involved and they will be cutting up and dismantling a vehicle as part of the event. Among the organisations taking part are Nottinghamshire Police, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, East Midlands Ambulance Service and Nottingham City Council. Sergeant Shakeel Rasul, of the Nottingham City Centre Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “The aim of the event is to highlight the dangers of drunk/drug driving and show the vital work carried out by our emergency services. .
