Eggtooth have partnered with East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service to create – Leaders for LIFE. It is an intensive 2 day course that provides an opportunity for East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service to engage with local young people within their local communities. The course enables the students to gain an understanding of the role and responsibilities of a Fire Fighter and also the emergency services by actually experiencing it first hand. It is an incredibly hard and challenging work experience within a disciplined and focused team environment and the course allows the young people to truly experience what it is like to be an operational Fire Fighter. They learn to be part of a team and for some, they have the opportunity to lead a team.
The course is designed to make sure the students understand how important it is to support each other. It is also about being able to receive orders, learn about personal and team health and safety, respect and self-discipline. The British Heart Foundation Heart Start First Aid course is completed on Day 1. The course finishes with a Pass Out parade for parents, carers and school staff to celebrate their achievements. It is an unforgettable experience eggtooth.org.uk
