Drills, 27th of January, Lectures on station

Currently we get little feed back from people reading the blog. If you have any questions, suggestions or comments please use the facility below.

At drills on the 27th of January the crew had lectures on the operational procedures and Risks and hazards of incidents that involved Asbestos, Refuse, Prisons and Lifts.



  1. Good Evening Fred & all at Yelverton

    Has the rank of watch manager replaced Station Officer and Crew Commander replaced the previous rank of Sub Officer? And what was the reason for the change?

    Also do you still carry the ridged hose for pumping from lakes etc?

    Thank you for your time in maintaining a most interesting blog.

    All the best for 2014 be safe and take care

    • Hi Mark.
      Thanks for the letter.
      Sorry I’ve taken so long answering.
      Watch Manager replaces Station Officer/Sub Officer, Crew Commander replaces Leading Firefighter. And yes we do still carry rigid hose, we refer to it as hard suction and it is used for drawing water from an open source such as a lake or a river.
