'Get Ready For Eddie'. That's the message from the World Police and Fire Games as its mascot hits the road in a bid to get youngsters fired up.
Emergency Eddie is travelling around primary schools across Northern Ireland to encourage them to connect with one of the largest multi-sports events in the world which is being staged here this summer.
The Get Ready For Eddie Roadshow will visit around 20 schools from now until the end of June to promote the Games' special schools' programme and highlight the importance of sport.
The programme has been designed as a free resource for every school, with an Irish language version also available.
John Tully, WPFG chief executive, said: "The lesson materials are not only of great educational value but also provide the opportunity for practical input from police and fire officers."
