FIREFIGHTERS in Eastbourne have this week been helping a group of youngsters to help to get their lives back on track.

The one-week LIFE course is helping a group of teens who are either struggling at school, at home or in the community, by teaching them some firefighting skills including rescue techniques, wearing firefighter’s breathing equipment and climbing to the top of Whitley Road training tower.

The course began on Monday (September 24) with the aim of giving the teenagers some time in a uniformed and disciplined environment.

The scheme has been running for seven years find out more please contact the team on 0303 999 1000 and ask for LIFE.
