Firefighters take on 999 challenge

SALTASH firefighters took on a ‘999’ challenge to help send ambulances to Ukraine.

The nine crew members wore their full 30kg firefighting kit to race nine miles back and forth across the Tamar Bridge in less than nine hours.

The Saltash Community Fire Station team explained how they are supporting the Cornish charity Outreach Paramedics to provide vital medical transport to Ukraine.

“The fire service in Ukraine co-respond, meaning that, in addition to normal fire service duties, they also respond to medical emergencies using ambulances,” said the crew.
