If you’ve ever wondered how fire teams work so quickly at the scene of real traffic accidents to rescue drivers in distress? It’s all down to constant practice, without regular practice, it would be difficult for the Fire and Rescue teams to picture different accident scenarios. Practices are key to their progression and it can only be achieved through physical enactment of the different situations.

In the case of Merseyside Fire and Rescue, the aftermath training is done courtesy of the staff at Robcliffe.

They donate end of life vehicles (ELV) from Huyton for these crucial skill building exercises so that the local Fire and Rescue Service can practice these life-saving skills. The team at Robcliffe volunteered to make their facilities available, by helping the Fire and Rescue team arrange a variety of accident scenarios that firefighters may encounter in real-life. Rehearsing includes various cutting methods, extraction and lifesaving techniques that are crucial in building up a Fire Team’s knowledge.

The donated vehicles are recycled in the usual way after the training sessions have been completed. But being a part of something so vital in the community is quite remarkable for the team at Robcliffe.

Robcliffe’s Site Manager Stephen said: “Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service play an invaluable part in rescuing endangered drivers, often saving lives. As we have the perfect place for them to train here at our recycling centre, we are only too happy to be able to assist them in training for this vital role.”
