A new group of students have celebrated their success at Haywards Heath Fire Station after completing West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service’s FireBreak programme.
The families and friends of the students were invited to watch them take part in a Pass Out Parade on Friday 1 February following a week of training.
The students were able to complete two drills after spending the week learning skills such as hose running, fire safety, ladder climbs and wearing breathing apparatus.
They have also been taught CPR and gained a HeartStart first aid training qualification.
Neil Stocker, Deputy Chief Fire Officer, who presented the graduates with their awards, said: “It has been a challenging week for these young people, and they should be proud of their achievements.
