The Melton Firefighter’s Christmas appeal raised £5,100 for local causes. Melton CFR received a £300 donation that will help us to purchase essential equipment.
Five members of the Melton Community First Responder group have recently qualified as Level 3 responders. Level 3 responders will be responding to some accidents (excluding road traffic) and will also be responding to babies and children. The rest of the group are currently Level 2 and mainly respond to illnesses and do not respond to anyone under 12 years old.
The course also included 7 people from other groups throughout Leicestershire. Part of the course included splitting into 2 groups of 6. Each group had to set up simulated accidents / illnesses for the other group to deal with. Needless to say, we tried to make it as difficult as possible for the other group! This ensured that each test was quite challenging.
