The Lancashire branch in conjunction with the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service will host a CPD event focusing on the Winter Hill fire. Presenter Shaun Walton will detail the significant wildfire that took place in June and July 2018.
The wildfire was unprecedented in terms of scale and intensity in Lancashire and required a Fire & Rescue Service attendance for 41 days. This presentation will inform delegates of the many challenges that the incident presented and include established and innovative methods delivered by Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service to manage the incident.
This lecture is the third free CPD event of 2019. The events are run by the IFE in conjunction with the University of Central Lancashire and Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service. They are aimed at those working within the fire sector and those currently studying in fire and rescue related areas.
