Crash Live is a road safety event which brings together Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Scottish Ambulance Service and Community Safety for Aberdeenshire.

The event will start at 2pm and there will be a short presentation from the services in attendance and a staged crash within the Community Centre car park, showing how the emergency services deal with a serious road collision from start to finish.

As well as the demonstration of an emergency situation, each emergency service will give a short presentation about their role and those attending will be able to ask questions in an informal question and answer session.

Inspector Jonathan Millar of the Garioch Community Policing Team said: “Crash Live is a multi agency event organised to help us get the message across about the dangers of anti-social and inappropriate driving.

“Last weekend the event was held in Huntly and was positively received by those who attended.

“It is hoped that holding it again in Inverurie, we can promote road safety messages to drivers of all ages from the Garioch area or those with an interest in the work of the emergency services.

Inspector Millar added: “It’s a free event, open to anyone and there is no need to book a place. We look forward to welcoming anyone who wishes to attend and demonstrating the work we do.”

Crash Live will be held from 2pm-4pm on Saturday, April 4, at Garioch Community Centre, Chelsea Road, Inverurie.
