Welcome to Aprils edition of The Burning Issue.
The past few months you have been up to all sorts of wonderful, brave things for charity.
In this issue alone we have firefighters carrying a giant ladder in full kit for 13 miles, a duo who are set to cycle across Costa Rica over ten days, and a firefighter who is set to row 2,700 miles across the world’s largest ocean with his childhood friend.
We have the wonderfully inspiring story of ten year old Andrew Impey, who is such a big fan of the fire service he has turned his bedroom into fire station! Andrew has visited over 500 fire stations in little more than a year; his epic journey so far has raised £600 for The Firefighters charity and attracted attention from fire services across the globe. If you would like to help Andrew reach his target Text OLACA99 £2 to 70070.
This issues cover stars are The National Resilience team from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service who recently hosted two simultaneous disaster scenarios; the exercise was named Paradise City, providing training in handling major incidents.
Group manager Paul cross summed up the importance of these live exercises perfectly: “Days like these make me realise how important and how excellent our teams are in the UK. We train and prepare on a regular basis and we provide the best possible service to our communities.”
