West Yorkshire Fire Service GRIT Programme

Added: July 22nd, 2019

Students from Years 8, 9 and 10 have been fired up over the past ten weeks as part of the West Yorkshire Fire Service’s GRIT programme. GRIT encourages young people to work together to achieve and uses practical challenges to develop confidence, communication and determination. Under the inspiring leadership of youth workers and operational fire fighters, our team has mastered hoses, navigated a ‘smoke filled’ building in full breathing apparatus, removed the roof and doors from cars, scaled ladders and multi-storey buildings and more! Fears have been faced and conquered, memories made and knowledge and skills acquired that will stand our young people in good stead whatever their future holds. Mr Shires and Mrs Hindle are immensely proud of the young firefighters and their achievements over the past few months.
