Fire Training

Fire Training
By Fin O'Sullivan

As well as running a power station and sewage plant, all the wintererís have to be the fire brigade, as there is no one coming when we dial 999. So on a beautiful sunny day we had to do our fire training. As well as being taught how to use the breathing apparatus (by Andy Porte) we also got a great chance to play with fire. Andy Richardson expertly demonstrated to us feeble minded no technical people how to use a fire extinguisher.

Ably helped by Paul Booth, they set up numerous flammable containers on North beach and we had ample opportunity to practice putting them out.

Some of the fire fighters were so effective that it improved impossible to relight the fires so we all felt very safe.
