Working with the Community

To supplement and enhance training various courses are undertaken, for which certification is provided, and competitions/exercises between other Local Authorities are arranged annually. In addition Civil Defence provides support to many community events such as Point to Point Races, Athletics, Sports Meetings, Gymkhanas, Cycling Events, etc., and also provides transport for charitable organisation such as Chernobyl Children, Special Summer Camps etc.. This voluntary work also gives the volunteer a hands-on approach to demonstrate the skills attained in the training centres.
