west mids fire service exercise, (Car crash in tunnel)

Hi all , this is very short notice but i have been given the go ahead to open this training exercise to yourselves to come along and watch..
This is a major fire service exercise in cradley heath west mids, this coming sunday.. i have 15 to 20 places maximum available for you to come along and watch..
The scenario is in a massive (disused in parts) factory. It will take place in an underground tunnel and will simulate a 5 car pile up and will include live casualties. A fire will be simulated and i will be your guide to explain everything that takes place, you will observe at least 10 appliances dealing with this incident..
please let me know if your interested and ill give the venue details etc if this proves popular..
You will not be allowed access if you just turn up on spec so to speak so can i guage the interest from here first.. regards , lee.

I'd be interested if you could let me know the date, time and how long you expect it to last so I can confirm. Would be bringing a +1 too.

Cheers, Karl.

Both my parents work for the fire service - Something I always wanted to do but opted for the office job lol.

They told me about this as I have a couple friends that are involved too!
Would be an interesting watch!
