MFRS Crew display road traffic collision rescue techniques

Fire Fighters of the Montserrat Fire and Rescue Service (MFRS) displayed their skills as they carried out several Road Traffic Collision rescue techniques on Wednesday, December 14, 2011 on the Little Bay public road.

Training Officer Mr. Astride Wade told The Montserrat Reporter he was pleased with the Fire Fighters’ performance. He said the exercise was designed to test the response capability of the Fire and Rescue Service and determined training needs and resource requirements.

The training officer said that the Montserrat Fire and Rescue service has been conducting training on a continuous basis. He stressed that the MFRS needs to better equiped to cater for the changing demand of the island. “We are in need of equipment,” he said, noting that the MFRS has been trying to get a hydraulic rescue tool for a while.

 Meanwhile, Acting Fire Chief, Andre West commended the training officer and his support staff for a job well-done.  West said that the excise was quite timely since four members of staff recently completed similar training in Trinidad and the United Kingdom. “This gave them the opportunity to demonstrate and apply the skills learnt,” he noted.

“Training plays an integral role in fulfilling the Fire Service mission and its objectives to prepare us to respond efficiently and effectively to all emergency calls,” the fire chief emphasised.
