Fire Service Prepares For Major Training Exercise

24th September 2021
Mansfield, Ashfield, Bolsover

Fire Services Prepare For Major Training Exercise

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service are carrying out a major training exercise this weekend, along with a range of partner organisations, at Pleasley Vale Business Park. 

The exercise is taking place on Sunday (Sept 26th) and involves Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, Nottinghamshire Police, Nottinghamshire County Council, Bolsover District Council and others. 

It’s been designed to test the Service’s new evacuation procedures which have been updated following the Grenfell Tower disaster.

These procedures will make sure our fire service can more effectively serve people living in high-rise buildings.

The exercise in the six-storey former textile mill on Outgang Lane will involve 15 fire engines, six fire officers, numerous firefighters and up to 60 volunteers acting as live casualties.

It will start at 10am and is expected to finish between 12 and 1pm. 

It will be followed by an evaluation and learning points will be shared with all the partner organisations.
