Fire and Rescue Visit College

Published 01 July

Public Services


The Fire and Rescue service has recently come in to teach Public Services students the importance of driving safely.

In a dramatic re-enactment, Skipton fire crew placed two Public Services students in a wrecked car and safely removed them from an imaginary crash. Using real-life techniques and equipment such as the ‘jaws of life’, the car’s roof was cut off and the students were brought to safety. Not only were the students observing the fire crew, but it was also a great practical insight for the students interested in a career in the Fire Service.

It was also hoped that other College students who had gathered to watch would reflect on the lethal outcomes of dangerous driving. Fire officers reminded the students that for them, the mixed odour of oil, petrol and body fluids they came across at real-life accidents really was the ‘smell of death’, something they could never forget.
