Police, firefighters and paramedics have been teaming up in a bid to stop lives being lost on Calderdale’s roads.

Events have been taking place across the district as part of National Road Safety Week - a push to prevent people dying being injured in accidents.

They included a mock crash scene at Halifax Fire Station where Calderdale College students learnt about the reality of road accidents and a free road safety roadshow at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax where businesses and schools were invited to send staff and students to learn more about keeping safe on the road.

Road safety will again be the message at Calderdale Emergancy Service’s Day at the Piece Hall in Halifax on Saturday from 10.30am to 3.30pm.All the emergency services will be giving out advice, tours of their equipment and staging another mock accident scene. There will also be a host of entertainment including music, dancing, a children’s play area and stalls.

On Sunday at 4pm there will be a service for accident victims at Halifax Minster.
