Kent firefighters offer lorry drivers crash demonstration
KENT firefighters will be teaching lorry drivers at Brands Hatch Race Circuit this weekend what to do in a crash.
They will use specialist rescue equipment and offer emergency roadside advice.
The show is designed to tackle figures showing 140 road traffic crashes happened in the last three years involving trucks.
Eight people died as a result and 51 people were seriously injured.
The demonstrations will take place during a Truck Superprix event at Brands Hatch Race Circuit, in Fawkham, Longfield, on Sunday (November 4) between 2.30pm and 3pm.
Kent Fire and Rescue Service risk reduction manager, Stuart Albon, said: “The weekend should be fun as well as informative and we are hoping that people will take away some valuable advice that will help keep them safer on our roads.”
