The Leeds District Team continues to work with our partners in support of our goal to make Leeds a safer place to live. As part of our commitment to community safety and partnership working, we continue to work closely with Leeds City Council, Leeds and York NHS Foundation Trust and the HM Prison Service. Prevention Staff and Operational Crews are now delivering safe and well visits to the most vulnerable people within our communities. We also continue to work with the River Side Safety Group by developing and delivering initiatives to prevent loss of life or injury in the River Aire.
Operational crews continue to prepare and respond to the wide range of risks that face our communities. Crews recently carried out a series of building fire exercises which focused on the use of Breathing Apparatus and Fire Fighter safety. We are currently developing an exercise to test our ability to deliver vast amounts of water to an incident ground using a number of Fire Appliances and a High Volume Pump. This tactical procedure is known as a Water Relay which we tend to use at larger fires or incidents in remote areas where water is often in short supply.
