Rochester Airport

We’re excited that there are just a few days to go until we welcome our registered ticket holders to our sold-out Emergency Services Fun Day, the biggest of its kind in Kent. 

With flashing lights, fire engines, helicopters, police cars – and so much more – it’s going to be a fun-filled and action-packed day out for all the family. 

Taking place during national Air Ambulance Week and on National 999 Day, there couldn’t be a better time to discover more about the local emergency services who are here for you 24/7. 

Here’s just some of the exciting activities to enjoy:  

  • Meet the Crew: Get up close with the dedicated KSS crew and learn about their life-saving work.
  • CPR Demonstrations: Witness our crews performing CPR with awareness on how you can help save a life too!
  • Games & Prizes: Enjoy a variety of fun games for all ages with exciting prizes to be won.
  • Food Stalls: Taste delicious treats from local food vendors.
  • Ice Cream Vans: Stay cool with refreshing ice cream on a warm summer’s day.
  • Face Painting & Glitter Stalls: Add some sparkle and get creative with face painting and glitter accessories.
