Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service has become an affiliate member of the Association of Building Engineers, the professional organisation which specialises in buildings technology.

Shrewsbury Station Officer Brian Downes said: "They provide quality training courses open to our fire officers on relevant subjects such as fire safety engineering, smoke ventilation and building sprinkler systems which help us to keep on top of new regulations.

"This is a cost saving measure for us which will give us access to high quality professional training at less expense."
