More than 60 firefighters and dozens of emergency vehicles will be involved in a major training exercise in Sheffield today.
South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue will be testing its response to a major blaze involving casualties during the live training scenario at the former Prince Edward Primary School site on the Manor estate.
Station manager Darren Perrot, said: “Exercises such as this are vitally important for two reasons. First, they give our crews excellent experience of dealing with, bringing realistic scenarios to life in real time.
"Secondly, they help us to test the procedures that we have in place to work with the other emergency services at incidents.
“How we work alongside our emergency service partners is an important aspect to our training as there is much we can continue to learn from one another about our ways of responding to incidents.”
