MEMBERS of the Droitwich’s Young Firefighters’ Association (YFA) were commended in the town for completing their training programmes.
The eight youngsters performed many of the skills they had learned on the 13-week programme, including a hose-running drill, ladder-climb, a simulated car fire and a house rescue demonstration.
Each member was presented with a certificate by the Hereford and Worcestershire Fire and Rescue Service’s deputy chief fire officer Richard Lawrence.
Ade Taylor, Droitwich YFA’s branch co-ordinator, said: ‘It’s important that we recognise the achievement of the young firefighters who have worked so hard to complete their training.
“The passing out ceremony is an opportunity to congratulate these youngsters and extend our thanks to their families for supporting them through this process.”
Mr Lawrence added: “These young people will have developed many skills, such as self-confidence, team work and community spirit, that will be of positive benefit to them as they go through life.
“It takes determination and commitment to complete the YFA programme and they should be proud of themselves for achieving this.”
The Droitwich branch of the YFA meet every Wednesday evening at Droitwich Fire Station between 7pm and 9pm.
