Fire Service training exercise

in News

The exercise, which will be held at Churchfields Business Park in Clensmore Street from 7pm on Thursday evening (21 July), aims to test how the Fire Service gets water to the scene of an industrial fire, with the focus on water relay techniques and the use of high volume pumping equipment.

Red Watch at Kidderminster will be running the exercise, with fire engines from Kidderminster, Stourport-on-Severn and Bewdley attending along with personnel from the Churchfields industrial site.

Watch Commander Gareth Clarke said: "Exercises of this nature are vital to our on-going training, and we would like to thank those associated with Churchfields Business Park for providing this opportunity."

He also warned that any fire engines seen in the Clensmore Street area on Thursday evening should not be cause for concern as they are likely to be part of the exercise.
