Toughest Young Fire Crew National Competition
Young firefighters from across the UK assembled at ECFRS Headquarters today to compete in the Toughest Young Fire Crew Challenge.
Teams from Essex, Lincolnshire, Mid and West Wales, Hereford and Worcester and Devon and Somerset fire services took part in the event designed to challenge the skills of young firefighters.
Essex County Fire and Rescue Service came out top, with Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service in close 2nd and Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service in 3rd but all the competitors enjoyed putting their skills to the test and even made some new friends in the process.
Donna Finch, ECFRS Children and Young People Manager, said “It was fantastic to see all the teams doing so well. The commitment they have shown is amazing, all the training and hard work, and then travelling all the way down to Essex to take part - well done to them all. I’d like to thank everyone who helped make the event such a success”
