Emergency services sirens, police horses and delighted children brought Gnarojin Park to life last Friday on the last day of summer holidays.

The Narrogin Blue Light Unit liaised with police departments in Perth to organise the family-friendly Code Blue community event.

Narrogin police Sgt Heidi Melia said this year’s event focused on a back to school message.

“When the kids sign up for laser tag, we can then keep in touch with them to see if they’re going to school,” Sgt Melia said.

Activities included a water slide, bouncy castle and the chance to see police horses, motorbikes and a dog handler up close.

A car accident simulation demonstrated how emergency services work together to save lives.
