STUDENTS considering a career in uniformed service have been learning more about fire-fighting.

A group of Uniformed and Public Services students from Northumberland College took a trip to Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service’s headquarters near Cramlington to find out first-hand about its work.

They learnt about the different types of incidents attended by firefighters, such as search and rescue operations and road traffic collisions, and took part in practical activities, including the safe use of hoses and pumps and cutting up an old car using hydraulic tools.
