Operational Firefighters are highly trained to respond to a wide range of emergency calls. These include incidents such as fires, road traffic collisions, special rescues, chemical spills and floods.
Firefighters also spend time educating the public about fire safety by giving educational talks in schools and visiting individuals in their homes.
The staff in the Learning and Development department are responsible to ensure that all the necessary skills required in a modern Fire and Rescue Service are catered for. This evolves around maintaining current skills and activities both practical and managerial.
Training takes a number of forms and various methods are used to achieve the objectives that are all based around the concept of staff being competent to do their jobs.
