Community Fire and Rescue Service Events & Campaigns
Cornwall Community Fire and Rescue Service hold many community events and campaigns throughout the year.
View what we have planned and get involved:
Half-Dressed Biker Mannequin Tour
Look out for the biker mannequin at a Cornwall College campus near you, and take one of the leaflets. This explains the importance of wearing proper protective clothing, and how effective it is: just look at the mannequin to see what could happen to you if you come off your bike without wearing the proper gear. For further information and advice on protective clothing, please visit the Wear the Right Gear page.
If you would like to win a Bullet Proof Hoodie, then please enter our free competition. Complete the survey and answer the final question correctly to be in for a chance to win. Entrants must be 16 years or over, one entry per person and the closing date is Friday 24th July 2015 (no entries accepted after this date). The draw will take place by the end of August 2015, and the winner will be notified within 14 days of the draw.
Arson Awareness Week - 3 - 9 May 2015
Deaf Awareness Week - 4 - 10 May 2015
Boat Fire Safety Week - 25 - 31 May 2015
Annual Charity Rugby Match - RNLI Vs Penzance Fire - 30 May 2015
This charity rugby fixture played between Firefighters and the RNLI Lifeboat crews and Lifeguards, will be taking place this year on the Cornish Pirates ground in Penzance. The last two years have been resounding success with a great turn out of players from around the services and support from the local area, which raised two thousand pounds for the Fire Fighters Charity and the RNLI.
This year we will be raising funds for the Macmillan Cove project, the RNLI, with their money going towards a new boathouse for the Penlee crew and The Fire Fighters Charity. This will be a really good day watching good local rugby, with a BBQ throughout, a raffle and auction afterwards. We hope this attracts a decent crowd again with the aim to better last year’s attendance and fundraising total.
The date of the rugby is the 30th of May 2015 – KO 1430, please save the date and we hope to see lots of people there ether playing or supporting. View the Facebook page for the Rugby Match, which has been set up for all upcoming events and info in the lead up to the game.

There will be food available to buy on site and reasonably priced drinks, all for only £5.00 a ticket (if bought in advance) from Penzance fire station. The charities that profits will go to this year are The Fire Fighter’s Charity and The Cove Macmillan Cancer Support Centre at Treliske; both excellent reasons to have a fun night if excuses were needed!
