Students visit The Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service Training and Safety Centre in Bury!
On Tuesday, our home-schooled students visited the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service Training and Safety Centre in Bury.
The Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) Training and Safety Centre is the largest Fire-Fighter training facility in the UK. It is designed to inform visitors about how to protect themselves against fire and other dangers. ‘The visit that could save your life’ introduced the work of Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and allowed the children to experience their impressive immersive theatre as well as the various programme of learning activities.
Through the various activities children got to put themselves in the firefighter shoes, experience the real fire and rescue service and learn how to save lives. They also got to learn lifesaving skills such as CPR, investigate a simulated road traffic collision scene, as well as going in to the full-size firehouse to spot potential risks and test if you they be able to escape the fire. This followed on by the sound of the sirens to experience the heart of the action.
Students enjoyed a valuable experience on how to protect themselves against fire and other dangers and were issued a certificate at the end of the day.
