Crich, and the NFRS 999 Day at Newstead Abbey

Last weekend, we took the K2 and a pump to the Crich 1940s weekend simply as a static exhibit, as sadly we did not have the crew for a display. This was partly due to the clash with the Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service 999 Day at Newstead Abbey which we wish to support. It was a fantastic day, well organised, and with huge crowds. Although this time we were there as a static display, it generated a lot of interest.

Next year, there is a possibility of running events to pit our equipment against NFRS. Who can get ‘water on’ at 60 feet first from the lake? Or a variation on the old trailer pump drill competitions?
