BIG THANKS were given by the Asian Development Association Bury (ADAB) following safety and public engagement training with the fire service.
The visit, which included a presentation of the range of services provided by Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS), was enjoyed by ADAB and Citizen-British Council workers last week (March 7).
Guests were also able to observe a practical road traffic collision demonstration and try their hand at a car simulator experience.
Taz Zaffar from ADAB said: â€œOur visitors have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have shared the passion and enthusiasm from Bury with the whole group in London.â€
The group was made up of a range of nationalities from around the world and they will now feedback their learning and experiences upon return to their home countries.
Taz said: â€œThe feedback we received has been brilliant and just amazing. Our visitors have said they will take back the information from the day and implement this in their projects.
â€œThe visit to Bury has taught them about community spirit, tolerance and cohesion and how well it can be done.â€
Cllr David Acton, Chairman of Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Authority, added: â€œThis event was a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our strength when it comes to public engagement and our enthusiasm for happy and safe communities is now spreading all over the world.â€
