Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service and Merseyside Ferries
Dates: A Mersey Ferry on the River Mersey Thursday 6th March 2014 9:00am – 3:00pm
In association with Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service and Merseyside Ferries, the University of Liverpool are hosting a rare and exciting live one day multi-agency training exercise and are offering YOU the unique opportunity to participate as role players on the day.
The exercise will be based on an incident occurring on an operational ferry in the River Mersey. The purpose of this training exercise is to allow the emergency responders to test their capabilities in managing these threats in a difficult and unusual location. Your participation can aid in improving the future policies and protocols of emergency services.
The majority of roles require suitable undergarments to be worn underneath clothes (such as a swimsuit, wetsuit or tight sportswear) as the fire service will be using decontamination processes that will require outer clothing to be removed. Participants must be over 18 and must not suffer from sea-sickness.
