Station 5, Durban, had a great scenario based training day yesterday organised by training officer Wendy Serfontein. The tasks that were concentrated on varied from fire fighting (a fire in the store, using a smoke machine, was tackled ... breathing apparatus used and a patient rescued) to navigation and search and rescue. According to deputy station commander Andre Fletcher, the crew were challenged while being taught from advanced navigation to how holding up a simple space blanket increased the visibility of a small craft on radar.Pictures by Andre Fletcher:extinguishes a fire.
