Clough Road Humberside Fire and Rescue Service training facility

“Building work started in January last year, with initial completion date set for May 2020. However, due to Coronavirus outbreak, building work was suspended in March. Following guidance from the government and maintaining a Covid secure site, we returned to site at the beginning of May and the building was completed at end of July.”

In October we completed the construction of a newbuild training facility at HFRS’s Clough Road facility in Hull. The pre-cast concrete building includes state of the art training facilities that provide firefighters with a realistic environment to train in. These include a cold (synthetic) smoke that provides the realistic training environment of a burning building, without the need to burn clean (new and uncontaminated) wood, which is better for the environment and reduces the impact of smoke on the nearby businesses and people passing by the facility.

The concept noise system adds to the realistic training situation to maintain the firefighters skills when responding to real emergencies. There is a confined space area that helps firefighters train for when they must access difficult and confined spaces to rescue a casualty. The facility has an external area for Road Traffic Collison (RTC) training, which provides ample space to practice cutting and making vehicles safe that have been in a collision.
