Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service training exercise - Rugby
WARWICKSHIRE Fire and Rescue Service (WFRS) carry out a training exercise at Biart Place in Rugby tomorrow (Friday 6 September).
The exercise, which starts at 10am and includes the use of cosmetic smoke, allows WFRS to test operational procedures and analyse resources, equipment and individual role requirements.
Cllr Andy Crump, Warwickshire County Council portfolio holder for fire and community safety, said: "Training exercises such as this are essential to ensure our crews are ready and prepared to deal with any emergency.
"Thanks to Rugby Borough Council, we have been given the opportunity to undertake a realistic training exercise in an empty building to test our operational procedures.
"This is one of many training exercises that we undertake throughout the year to help keep Warwickshire communities safer."
The training exercise looks set to be completed by 12.30pm.
