Excellent results for Fire & Rescue


Cornwall’s Fire & Rescue Service managers are celebrating after achieving outstanding results on recognised training courses.

A 15-year partnership between Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service (FRS) and Cornwall College Business (CCB) has provided numerous members of staff with training in health & safety, leadership and management.

Group Manager Mark Hewitt, development manager for Cornwall FRS, said: “Training and development is critical to Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service and the community we serve. It helps us face challenges and seize opportunities. We can ensure we have the right people with the right skills to deal safely, effectively and efficiently with any situation that we may face.

Cornwall College Business has helped us find new ways to implement training for our staff, and the training programme they tailored for us has taken our managers to the next level.”

Dave Linnell OBE, Principal of Cornwall College, said: “We greatly value our ongoing relationship with Cornwall Fire &Rescue Service and it is good to see yet another cohort being recognised for the hard work they have put in during their time on their courses.”
