Every breath you take

Saturday, 16 March, 2013 - 12:00

Come along to the museum for a fun exploration of the important role that Cannock Chase held in the development of breathing equipment during the last hundred years. Meet a miner and find out about how he trained to rescue underground. Ask an 'air raid warden' about raids during World War II and handle gas masks. Find out how the police and fire service use breathing apparatus to save people in emergency situations.
