The CPD was brilliant. We're so used to requiring a product to standard without being aware of its uses, limitations and scope. It was definitely a useful session to have and was very well received – East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service


Thank you on behalf of East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service for the input on the 5th November at Maresfield. There was nothing but positive feedback and it was a pleasure to have you and the benefit of your expertise – East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service
