Eight youngsters underwent training at Whitby Fire Station. On the schedule was resuscitation, vehicle maintenance, ropy skills and water safety. Plus a cab eye view of the road and a short blast from the sirens with blue lights.
It was an action packed morning with a lot to learn through interaction with the fire crew.
We expect the youngsters to behave well. They do not let us down!
We had a discussion amongst the youngsters and it was agreed they should give half the workshop fees to the local fire service benevolent fund. Firefighters help keep us safe.
Each youngster received a certificate of attendance and satisfactorily completing their basic training.
