A Film About Dyslexia

 

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service has made a film about dyslexia to raise awareness and encourage staff to get assessed if they think they may have it.

With a higher ratio of employees with dyslexia, the county’s fire and rescue service is one of only a few public sector organisations to run a special support programme acclaimed for changing the lives of staff.

Shropshire Wants More Women Firefighters'

 

More women are wanted to train as on call firefighters by Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service which is holding another “taster day” just for women on March 18.

Women who live within five minutes of one of Shropshire’s 23 fire stations are invited to attend the session at Bridgnorth Fire Station from 9.30am to 12.30 to see what life is like as a firefighter.

Firefighters' in Charity Car Wash

 

Shropshire firefighters armed with buckets and sponges are taking part in the national Fire Fighters charity car wash at fire stations across the county every Saturday in March.

They are hoping to raise hundreds of pounds for the charity which gives respite, recuperation and rehabilitation to sick or injured firefighters and their families.

Key Training for Shropshire Firefighters

 

A Shropshire company has made a “key” contribution to training county firefighters in how to enter buildings quickly in an emergency.

Building products manufacturer Epwin Group, a UK leader in innovative door and window design, gave hundreds of door locks to Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service to train firefighters.

Fire officers had been searching for more than a year for a company with a cheap source of doors, locks and handles, to help during specialist training sessions for all Shropshire’s 500 wholetime and on call firefighters. 

Fire Safety From Shropshire...To Denmark

 

Successful UK fire prevention methods will feature at a conference in Denmark in March after a visit organised by Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service from a 22-year-old student.

Andreas Sorgensen has just returned home after a ten week internship studying firefighting techniques in Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire fire and rescue services with a visit to West Midlands Ambulance Service as well.
