STUDENTS have been spending a day at Cosham fire station.
Youngsters from South Downs College, Highbury College and Portsmouth College had the opportunity to learn about the work that the fire service does.
Karen Wood, a volunteer at Cosham fire station, has helped to introduce a number of initiatives between the fire service and local youths.
She said: ‘It’s important for students on a public service course to be able to interact with members of a public service.
‘This initiative provides that opportunity as students are able to see first-hand how the station works and discuss the skills and qualities they will need to get into the fire service.
‘We then encourage them to take that information and pass it on to their peers.’
