FIREFIGHTERS from Leigh offered three educational courses on
water safety to students, colleagues and partners as part of the
Wigan Celebration of Learning campaign.
Firefighter Paul Smith designed the workshops delivering safety
messages to 60 students enrolled on a Public Services course at
Wigan and Leigh College.
Hosting an event with partners from the Environment Agency and
Mountain Rescue, crews from Leigh and Atherton discussed how to
deal with emergencies on water.
The final course saw a team of firefighters from across Wigan
travel to Keswick where they took part in various outdoor pursuits
and water rescue exercises, designed to build teamwork.
