A volunteer team of 6 visited South Sudan to deliver training on behalf of FIREAID and were working with the UN International Organisation for Migration.
The project consisted of two aspects of work, first to run a training course for community fire safety and community fire response teams. Secondly, to carry out a fire safety assessment of the displaced persons camp, which can hold thousands of people living in makeshift accommodation in a very small area, with schools, hospitals, markets etc. adding to the risk.
The team consisted of: Adrian Brown (Retired East Sussex), WM Jenny Hill (West Midlands FS / Fire Service College), WM Jenny Nangle (Lancashire FRS), WM Kathryn Duncan (London Fire Brigade), CM Ali Stone (Hampshire FRS), WM Clare Holmes (South Yorkshire FS)
