Dangerpoint Värd Framgångsrika Alliansen Träffas


Dangerpoint hosted a successful Alliance get together on Tuesday which included a visit from South Swedish Fire & rescue who are considering a safety centre in Malmo.

The visitors had spent Monday at Safeside learning about various initiatives in accident and fire prevention, meeting Assistant Chief Fire Officer Gary Taylor and visiting Handsworth.

The Alliance meeting also heard exciting plans from Manchester Fire about a combined training and safety centre in the city. Visitors were delighted to meet Dangerpoint's new mascot, Chaos, who appears equally confident responding to visitors in Yorkshire, Swedish and Welsh!

The Alliance plans a bigger than usual AGM at Hazard Alley Milton Keynes on September 11th to which staff teams from centres are invited. Ideas for workshops, presentations and speakers are welcome.
