NFRS crews face challenging conditions in cave training exercise​Firefighters from London Road, Stockhill, Stapleford, Carlton and West Bridgford took part in a training exercise this morning (Wednesday 16 May) inside Rouse's Sand Mine, a network of caves situated just off Peel Street in Nottingham.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/NFRS-crews-face-cramped-and-pitch-black-conidtins.aspxNFRS crews face challenging conditions in cave training exercise<p>​Firefighters from London Road, Stockhill, Stapleford, Carlton and West Bridgford took part in a training exercise this morning (Wednesday 16 May) inside Rouse's Sand Mine, a network of caves situated just off Peel Street in Nottingham.</p><p>The scenario faced by firefighters was a fire within the caves, with casualties reported. The aim of the exercise was to test breathing apparatus procedures in an unusual environment.</p><p>Jack Makepeace, Crew Manager at London Road Fire Station, who helped organise the exercise, said: "This was a particularly challenging exercise.</p><p>"Not only did the crews have to contend with small spaces and total darkness, they also had to carry casualties up several flights of narrow stairs up to the surface.</p><p>"There were many learning points that have been taken on board, ensuring that we can be as prepared as possible should an incident like this occur in the future."</p>
Highfields Fire Station hosts Nottinghamshire Police for officer trainingHighfields Fire Station has played host to a group of trainee police officers last week as part of a pilot to see where NFRS can share some of its estate with Nottinghamshire Police.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Highfields-Fire-Station-host-police-for-road-traning.aspxHighfields Fire Station hosts Nottinghamshire Police for officer training<p>​Highfields Fire Station has played host to a group of trainee police officers last week as part of a pilot to see where Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service can share some of its estate with Nottinghamshire Police for some of their training programmes. </p><p>The group, who are midway through their 18-week initial training, based themselves at the station for their roads policing module. During the week they covered issues such as the ‘fatal four’ and managing RTCs, as well as the legislation governing traffic offences such as drink driving and speeding. </p><p>The week is the first of several being considered whereby Nottinghamshire Police would utilise NFRS meeting rooms and training facilities as part of our on-going collaboration. </p><p>Area Manager Bryn Coleman, the Service’s collaboration lead, said: “Our collaboration activity with Nottinghamshire Police is going from strength to strength and last week was a great opportunity, not only for us to share our resources in a practical sense, but also to further cement our collaboration relationship. </p><p>“The week went really well and the group appreciated being able to use our facilities. We also took the opportunity to show them around some of our equipment and talk to firefighters about their work, which helped give our police colleagues a greater insight into us as a Service.”</p><p>Superintendent Paul Winter said: “Nottinghamshire Police is fortunate to be able to recruit a large number of officers and staff over the next year and as a result we have had to re-assess our current training facilities. Working with NFRS to use some of their spare capacity seems like the ideal solution and it provides excellent value for money for the public.”</p>
