Stanningley Fire Station hosts survival skills course


Aged 16-25? Learn how to survive this summer with the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service! writes Keely Bannister.

Are you aged between 16 and 25 years old? Currently unemployed, not in training or education? Do you enjoy the outdoors? This could be the course for you.

The West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service have teamed up with the Prince’s Trust to teach young adults the basic survival skills needed in the wild.

Attendees will have their experience in the outdoors transformed through learning the core skills of survival – shelter, water, fire and food.

The course, named Get Started With Survival, starts on Monday, 19th August and lasts for one week ending on Monday, 26th August.

It takes place at Stanningley Fire Station on Stanningley Road with travel expenses paid as well as breakfast and lunch being provided each day.

There is a taster day on Tuesday 13th August.

To register your place or ask any questions call 0113 236 8399.
