Stefanie Paterson, Assistant BID manager, said: “We’re ecstatic to announce that Emergency Services Day is back. After being delayed due to government restrictions over the past few years, we’re positive this event is going to be the best one yet.

“The goal of Emergency Services Day is to educate and inform the public of the work and procedures carried out by Police Scotland, the Scottish Ambulance Service and Fire Scotland.

"This includes live CPR demonstrations, road safety displays with car wrecks and talks and informative information for families. It’s sure to be a great and informative day.”

Then on Saturday, August 13 the Rotary Club of Falkirk’s annual Charities Day will take place in the High Street from 10am to 2pm.
