Firemen hold terror trainingÂ
FIREFIGHTERS at Southampton Airport heldÂ a training course designed to help the public manage aÂ terrorist attack situation.Â
Mayor of Eastleigh Bruce TennentÂ piloted theÂ citizenAID course. The course was delivered by the airport'sÂ firefighters as part of the EchoFour Training Centre.
The mayor and a number ofÂ companies, such as Carnival UK and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, were given training on how to manage a terrorist attackÂ situationÂ and how to help injured people before the emergency services arrive.
Cllr Tennent said: '˜You really hope that you won't have to be in a situation where you need it but, if you do, the experience is invaluable.'Â
Peter Hart, EchoFour trainingÂ manager, said: '˜CitizenAID develops skills that you will hopefully never need but the programme allows you to be prepared and not scared so you could help save a life.'
