STUDENTS from Goole left their studies behind to fight fires when they joined forces with the Humberside Fire and Rescue Service recently.

Year 12 and 13 teenagers on the BTEC Public Services course at the Goole High School Learning Quarter spent the day at the Calvert Lane fire station, in Hull, where they took charge of a simulated major incident.

The students learnt how to use equipment and took charge of commanding and controlling the situation, allocating manpower and solving problems throughout the ‘incident’.

Public Services teacher Joanne Hoppe said: “As well as having a great time, the students were involved in taking leadership, major incident planning, exercising self-discipline, in addition to using effective communication and working as part of a team. These are all criteria required as part of the BTEC qualification.

“We would like to thank the Calvert Lane fire crew for giving us all such a wonderful experience, which was a real eye-opener on the world of fire fighting.”
