Working within the Fire and Rescue Emergency Services

There are essentially four main roles and responsibilities when working as part of the Fire and Rescue Emergency Services, these are, 1) To extinguish fires in their designated jurisdiction and support other teams outside of their areas. 2) To protect life and possessions in the tragic event of a fire. 3) to rescue and protect individuals in a road traffic collision.  4) to protect and rescue people in the event of other emergencies. These dedicated professionals receive thorough and comprehensive training in all aspects of this potentially life-threatening occupation.  One of their many sessions they must attend before being allowed to deal with any real life situations is a Challenging behaviour training course, preferably run by a professional agency with many years’ experience.
