RTC training day at Fire Service College
On Saturday 18 February crews from Pebworth, Pershore, Upton-Upon-Severn and Kidderminster attended the Fire Service College to take part in some realistic RTC training that involved live casualties and authentic scenarios.
The scenarios were enhanced by Droitwich YFA and their instructors taking on the parts of live casualties as well as Police and Ambulance personnel.
This realistic set up gave both existing competent Incident Commanders and beginners the opportunity to practice and hone their skills in this type of situation. The crews were given the following scenarios to deal with:
Upton-Upon-Severn were the first Appliance in attendance, arriving to find a vehicle upside down in a ditch with a second vehicle on all four wheels against its tailgate preventing access from the rear. Pebworth acted as the second Appliance.
Pebworth were the first Appliance in attendance with Upton-Upon-Severn acting as support. The scenario was a vehicle having left the road, coming to rest against a tree on its side, with its roof against the tree. The second car involved in the scenario was on all four wheels pinning the first car against the tree.
