On Saturday 30th June, Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service is hosting its third annual ‘Tough Enough Challenge’ at their Training Centre in Chorley and is looking for volunteers to help raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity.
The event this year is bigger, tough and even better than previous years. The entry fee has been abolished, the minimum sponsorship has been reduced and new exciting challenges have been added to the programme.
Volunteers must be actively fit and relish a challenge which will test them both physically and mentally. Drills will be assessed by Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service’s instructors who will provide verbal encouragement.
The activities will closely resemble the first practical training session that new firefighters must complete when they join the service. This is a day that many recruits question their decision to join the service. Tasks such as hose and hydrant drills will be followed by navigating the ’Spiders Web’ and the ‘Confined Space Gallery’.
The event will start at 8:00 and will last several hours. Lunch will be provided at the Training Centre, which is on Southport Road, Euxton, Chorley, PR7 6DH.
Station Manager Paul Briggs, who is helping to manage the event, says:
“Last year’s event was very successful and we are hoping to make this one even better and raise more money for the Fire Fighters Charity. Whilst the challenge will be tough, we know that last year’s volunteers enjoyed and found it very rewarding. And remember, firefighters are willing to do this every day to help keep the community safe.”
