Training can now be offered on Island
A new on-Island training facility for firefighters will cut government costs and provide vital training 'in-house', according to Home Affairs minister Bill Malarkey.
The complex, unveiled yesterday (28 Nov), cost £600,000 and can simulate a range of different environments in which firefighters can train.
Previously, the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service sent their crews to the UK for training, leaving the service under-staffed.
Mr Malarkey says he's pleased the training can now be offered on Island
