Training exercise at Jamia Al-Karam

Posted on 24 March 2023

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service recently conducted a training exercise at Jamia Al-Karam School in Retford, alongside East Midlands Ambulance Service, HART, and Nottinghamshire Police.

The activity aimed to see how well the different emergency services work together in the event of an emergency, to consolidate learning about new basement procedures for the Service, and for HART to practise their breathing apparatus (BA) capabilities for smoke-filled rooms.

The scenario saw a possible security breach in the basement of Jamia Al-Karam with smoke and members of staff suspected inside, otherwise known as ‘persons reported’. Police were the first on scene, where they discovered the smoke and persons reported, at which point three fire engines, a Command Support Vehicle, and EMAS were mobilised. The exercise started at 9am and finished with a debrief at midday.

Mark Lawton, Crew Manager at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “It’s been brilliant. I think all services have got some good learning points out of it. It’s been fun and everyone has really gotten involved. It’s been a really good, effective morning.

“We are going to go away, I think, more knowledgeable of how we all work together.

“Thank you to all of our partners, EMAS, HART, the police, and of course, our hosts at Jamia Al-Karam, and thank you to everyone in the fire service, really appreciate their hard work.”
