Are you interested in learning about managing complex incidents? Operational staff can get their hands dirty at a training course with the fire service next month.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service is holding the heavy rescue course and it is designed to improve fire service staff’s learning of how to stabilise and support extricating a patient.

The learning objectives will be centred jointly around complex scene management and assessing a patient in a challenging environment.

Taking place at Wattisham Airfield between 8th to 10th August, the course will include a day of scenarios on LGV, coaches and trains.

Complex Patient Support Lead, Dave Sexby, who will be attending, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for a number of staff to join us to develop an enhanced understanding dealing with these rare and challenging scenarios.

“I understand three days is a significant commitment for any individual or team and I would be happy to assist facilitating any group or individual that can only attend on a single day.

“The program is best suited for staff who work in an operational or bronze function within EEAST with the intention that they will disseminate the learning and be in a position to support staff at these infrequent incidents.”

If you would like to attend the course, please contact Dave Sexby by emailing
