Here’s a picture from 2007 that amply demonstrates what our Fire and Rescue service personnel face on a daily basis. It’s taken in the Cardiff Airport Fire Training Simulator, an amazing piece of kit which can be computer controlled to recreate a fire on board a plane and allow the fire fighters the opportunity of experiencing the horror of tackling a blaze in the close confines of an aircraft cabin. Believe it or not I was taking these pictures in my everyday clothes such was the controllability of the fire. 

 

We’ve all seen the horror of a true disaster unfolding on our tv screens over the past weeks. I have nothing but admiration for all our emergency service personnel who put themselves in harms way to protect others.
