Stretford Road Safety Success

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) joined forces with Greater Manchester Police, North West Ambulance Service, Trafford Council's Road Safety Unit and various other organisations for the day to raise awareness of road safety. Students from Trafford College gave demonstrations on how to check your car is safe while volunteers from local bike companies carried out free maintenance checks and repairs, helped by the Trafford Youth Offending Team.

Stretford Station Manager Gethin Curzon said: "It may surprise some people to know that firefighters are now called to more road traffic collisions than fires and this is something that we are working to reduce.
