Emergency crews tackle scenarios as they work together to put their training to the test

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service (TWFRS) hosted the National Resilience Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) training exercise at its headquarters at Barmston Mere, bringing almost 150 people together over the two-day test.
They faced a series of incident simulations to compare responses, helping a Home Office project look at how their work can be developed in the future.

The organisations who joined the host service included fire and rescue services from County Durham and Darlington; Lancashire; Cumbria and West Yorkshire.

Others also drafted in were Northumbria Police; the North East Ambulance Service’s Hazardous Area Response Team; Military Observer; Salvation Army; and Sunderland University’s paramedic science students.
