At our Site Open Day at Wythenshawe Hall, our Site Manager Dave Lyon approached the Wythenshawe Fire Services, to see if they would be interested in using the scaffolding for rope rescue safety exercise purposes, whilst it wasn’t in use.
The Watch Manager visited Dave on site to discuss the safety exercise training they could carry out using the 12 metre high scaffolding, and Dave showed the Watch Manager the scaffold loading bay that they would be using.
There are blue, white, red and green watches, and each Watch Manager has an 8 – 10 person team.
For the Wythenshawe Fire Services, this was a unique opportunity for them as there was nowhere else in and around Manchester that they could practice their rope rescue scenarios, including ab-sailing down the scaffolding, climbing the scaffolding, and a rope rescue using a 70 kilo dummy.
The training sessions were a success and valued by all of the teams at Wythenshawe Fire Services.
