From 11th to 15th January Ysgol Aberconwy pupils from year 10: Sion Gughrill, Liam Crew, Emily Roberts, Shane Jones, Bobby Roberts, Conor Marr, Calem Edwards, Tony Roberts attended the ‘Phoenix Project’ at Llanfairfechan Fire Station.
They were trained in fire service drills including: hose safety, putting out fires, rescue from smoke filled buildings and vehicles, & low visibility search and rescue.
Proud parents and grandparents attended the demonstration on Friday 15th January in front of the Chief Fire Officer and Fire Association representatives, in which all achieved a Fire Service Qualification.
The pupils were commended on their excellent team work, accuracy and efficiency. They showed all the techniques that actual fire fighters are trained to use, including physical support for the lead firefighter, holding the hoses and back-up when moving blindly through burning buildings.
One student may be put forward for the next level of qualification.
