May 16 - Airport Fire And Rescue Service To Hold Emergency Response Driver Training Next Week

The Airport Fire and Rescue Service will be carrying out Emergency Response Driver Training for new drivers next week during Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st May.

As part of their ongoing training, the drivers will undergo practical training along Gibraltar’s roads so the public are likely to see and hear a fire vehicle making use of its blue lights and sirens.

The Emergency Response Driver Training will entail the fire vehicle travelling at a speed normally faster than the general flow of traffic but peak traffic times will be avoided in as far as possible.

A spokesperson said: "The Airport Fire and Rescue Service would like to inform the public and other road users who are asked not to be alarmed by the sight and sound of the fire vehicle using blue lights and sirens on our roads."
