Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and The Prince’s Trust have teamed up to offer a free five day course for unemployed 16-25 year olds.
The ‘Get Started’ course will provide students with insight into the role of the fire service, teaching valuable skills through team work and confidence building scenarios.
Jamie Morris the team leader of the programme said: “This short course focuses on the road safety role we play as a fire service, students will be taught extrication exercises, using real vehicles, to get a true understanding of how we rescue people from road traffic collisions. It is a fantastic opportunity as the course carries a qualification which the students can take with them to help support future prospects.”
The successful students will also have the opportunity to have their extrication exercises assessed by the United Kingdom Rescue Organisation (UKRO).
“We will offer support to the students for up to three months after they complete the course to help them move into education, training or employment so it really could be a springboard in to something new and exciting,” Jamie added.
The course is free, with lunch and travel expenses included.
The ‘Get Started’ course starts on Monday 24 August and runs until Friday 28 August and is based at Cromwell Road, Fire Station, Grimsby.
“I urge people to get in touch, this is a great opportunity for the young people of Grimsby,” Jamie added.
