Securitas hosts firefighting weekend for LFB graduate cadets

SecuritasSecuritas has hosted an action packed firefighting weekend for London Fire Brigade’s (LFB) top 12 graduate cadets. Taking place from 1 – 2 September, at the Fire Service College in Moreton-in-Marsh, the two-day experience gave the graduate cadets a safe and realistic insight into firefighting.

After classroom guidance and demonstrations, the cadets were put to the test through a series of controlled real-life scenarios – a valuable opportunity for them to gain hands-on experience under the supervision of instructors. Scenarios included tackling a domestic fire, rescuing casualties from an RTA and administering first aid. In addition, the cadets received homaltro tool training, were taught how to handle breathing apparatus and witnessed a backdraft demonstration.

LFB Commissioner, Dany Cotton, joined the cadets on day two of the weekend, taking part in exercises and presenting awards at the end of the day. Addressing the cadets, Dany commented: “I saw something in each and every one of you today. You have the right skills and attributes to join LFB – be proud of what you’ve achieved. This weekend would not have been possible without Securitas – thank you for allowing this to happen.”

Shaun Kennedy, Director of Specialist Protective Services at Securitas UK commented: “As a trusted partner to LFB and long-time supporter of Fire Cadets, it was a privilege to host this weekend. It was truly rewarding to watch this talented group of cadets overcome all challenges and apply themselves to the highest standards.

“Witnessing first-hand the personal achievements of each cadet, and listening to their positive feedback, makes it all worthwhile. A number of people from Securitas and LFB dedicated their time and expertise to make this weekend happen and I would like to thank each of them for their commitment.”
