Welcome to the latest edition of The Burning Issue, where Hampshire are pioneering a new approach to firefighting in the UK.
The SAVE strategy, which stands for ‘scan, attack, ventilate, enter’ is a new approach overseen by Assistant Chief Officer Andy Bower which includes greater use of state of the art thermal imaging camera’s to locate and assess a fire before entering the building. This new strategy will revolutionise the way Hampshire work and they are hoping this new approach will be adopted by other counties.
You can read the in depth explanation about SAVE by Hampshire Fire and Rescue service on pages 24-25.
Hampshire have also been busy, receiving visitors from the USA. A team of firefighters from Oregon arrived to learn some new techniques and study the services approach to wildfires and major incidents. Their visit follows Hampshire’s trip to Oregon last year where they were a part of the team that battled a 75,000 acre wildfire, the largest burning in the country at the time.
Two Taunton Firefighters have received nominations for the British Heart Foundation Heart Hero Awards. Phil Musgrove and Richard Flavin have trained over 2,659 members of the public on how to administer CPR and the effective use of a public access AED.
