Week thirteen

After yet another bank holiday ended we all began week 13 on a Tuesday.

Week thirteen

Two days of HazMat met us, which involved nearly two days of classroom theory leading to some practical work wearing gas tight suits which was amusing.

Thursday was soon upon us all, the final exam of the course! Everyone passed with flying colours, the relief was easy to see on everyone’s faces. We then visited Scunthorpe Fire Station for some high-rise learning prior to us completing an exercise simulating a flat fire on the 19th floor! No lifts allowed. It was a great exercise and it really brought home how challenging working in high-rise buildings can be.

Friday was back to basics doing hose and ladder drills, ironing out any skills fade.
