A unique project has been set up between Merseyside, London and
Cleveland to share experiences in community fire safety, particularly relating to
older people. The three Fire and Rescue Services have set up a peer mentoring partnership
so they can learn from each other.
The scheme involved exchange visits between fire personnel to each of the brigades
and is a follow on from the Beacon Status for �Services for Older People that was
awarded to MF&RS in 2004.
