16+ COPE Group have been on a trip to the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Training and Development Centre in Handsworth have opened their doors so 16+ COPE could take a good look around their fantastic facilities.
As part of the visit the group were given an insight into the training process and an overview of the work undertaken by the fire and rescue service. The group were fortunate enough to be shown inside the Fire Training Building and given the opportunity to 'get-to-grips' with a variety of rescue equipment. The group really enjoyed their visit, with particular interest being shown in the respiratory equipment and the fire engines. 16+ COPE group were surprised at how much training fire officers have to do.
