Team undertakes off road driver training at City Airport and Heliport Manchester (Barton)

This morning and in to the early afternoon, two team members took part in an off road driver training session held at City Airport and Heliport Manchester (Barton)

This excellent training was provided by four members of North West 4 x 4 Response, primarily for the Airport Fire and Rescue Service duty crews, who operate a Land Rover and Toyota HiLux Rapid Intervention Airfield Fire Appliances.

With thanks to our growing links with North West 4 x 4 Response, our friends at the Airport Fire and Rescue Service and Mark Knowles, Airport FSO, we accepted their joint invitation to take part today.
