112-Day Delft

Delft residents can learn more about the emergency services available to them as part of the annual 112-Dag Delft.
Bureau Binnenstad Delft in collaboration with the Delft police force, are organising an open day on October 4, 2014.

There will be representation from the fire department, ambulance service, police force, GGD (Dutch public health services) and Dutch military; with many additional companies and organisations involved in funding and executing the day’s events.

Growing in popularity each year and expected to host more than 20,000 visitors in 2014, the 112-Dag Delft aims to promote the role of the emergency services in Delft by providing residents with information about what services are available to them. Whilst the main focus of the day is on information dissemination, organisers are hoping to make it a fun day for the whole family. “It is a fun and interactive way to learn more about the emergency services of Delft and the Netherlands,” says event project manager Lucas Nieuwenhuis of Bureau Binnenstad Delft.

In addition to being able to look around the police cells, watch the fire department extinguish a fire or have your windshield chip repaired for free, 112-Dag Delft will also have a market offering everything from lunch to interior accessories and jewellery. Residents will also be able to enjoy music interludes by various bands including the Koninklijke Politiekapel Haaglanden (the Haaglanden Royal Police Band), jumping castles for children and even a driving simulator. Nieuwenhuis believes that TU Delft students may also find it interesting to learn more about Deltares, who describe themselves as “an independent, institute for applied research in the field of water, subsurface and infrastructure.”

If you still need another reason to visit, then perhaps being able to catch a glimpse of the only Bugatti Veyron in existence to display police branding is something that will get you out of bed on a Saturday morning. When asked if the Veyron has been good for publicity of the event, Nieuwenhuis replied “just Google ´Veyron politie´ and you will get many hits of local and nationwide news sites and papers.” It’s not every day that one gets to see a Veyron up close and personal, and definitely not in the stripes of the Dutch police force.

The event takes place at the Delft police station on Jacoba van Beierenlaan between 10:00 and 16:00 on Saturday October 4, 2014.
