Crew Training

AAreas covered in training, it is a long list which includes but is not limited to:-

Meteor fire engine arrives for our 3 monthly live fire, Amazing how 40 litres of Avtur burns

Crew arrive to assess the fire, we use Delta 500 branches during training and only use water so that we have to work hard to extinguish the flames.

There's a weak bridge so that means running extra lengths of hose  from  the truck.

Using an old oil drum with a keyhole at each end makes it very difficult to put out and will often blowback on you with a satisfying bang!
