Incidents In Brief
Community Centre
Saved
A fire was extinguished at a community centre in Everton.
The fire was in a sports hall connected to the community centre.
Station Manager Barry Moore said: "Firefighters attended the scene quickly and it was a fairly well developed fire when they arrived. The actions of the crews mitigated the fire damage.
"We worked with partners to bring the incident to a safe conclusion."
Six fire appliances were called out at 11.15pm on April 19 to Everton Brow along with an aerial appliance. Fire crews left the scene at around 7.15am on April 20.
Sofa Fire Tackled
Firefighters were called out after a fire involving two sofas that spread to a house in New Ferry.
Our Service was called out to a fire in Napier Road on April 15. Two sofas, which were outside the rear gable end of the property, were destroyed in the fire. The heat from the fire caused around five square metres of external rendering to fall from the house.
It is suspected that the fire was started deliberately.
Two fire appliances from Bromborough and Birkenhead community fire stations were called out. Firefighters were at the scene for just under half an hour.
Watch Manager Dave Simpson, of Bromborough Community Fire Station, said: "We would urge people to ensure that combustible waste materials and large unwanted household items are stored away from properties or are disposed of as soon as possible."
CLUED UP
Fire investigators, including a number of staff from Merseyside, have attended the North West Fire Investigation conference.
The conference was organised by The Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) North West Fire Investigation Group. Station Manager Franny Hill represents our Service in this group and arranged for Sian Falder, a consultant plastic surgeon at Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, to speak at the conference.
The conference heard from five speakers including senior police officers, forensic science lecturers and fire investigators.
Station Manager Franny Hill, from our Service, said: “The North West Fire Investigation Group worked hard to source excellent speakers whose input was well received and prompted further discussion. It was an extremely successful and informative day where delegates from all sectors of fire investigation came together to provide a learning experience for all.”
Sian Falder, a consultant plastic surgeon at Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, gave an emotional presentation about what happens to people when they’ve been badly burnt. Sian told
the story of how a two-year-old girl, who received 65 per cent burns in a caravan, recovered from her injuries.
The conference was held at Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service’s (GMFRS) Training and Development Centre (TDC) on March 13, 2015.
The conference was opened by Manchester Chief Fire Officer Peter O’Reilly and was closed by the CFOA Strategic lead for Fire Investigation Humberside Fire & Rescue Service Deputy Chief Fire Officer Chris Blacksell who provided insight into the role of CFOA and future work of the strategic fire investigation group.
