This year is the West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service are fully supporting the event, and they hope to have their new ALP from Worthing along with the Technical Rescue Unit from Horley.

With three different stations attending over the two days, they will be doing rescue displays on cars up in the Museums white pit by the Paviors exhibit.

The historic preserved Fire Service appliances will be on static display around the Museum, along with a presence from the RNLI, Police vehicles, RAF vehicles and model displays.
