Firefighters visit Prittlewell Centre

Firefighters paid a visit to our Southend Academy to teach them about how they tackle blazes.

Crews met youngsters at PLT Southend Academies Prittlewell Centre, in Burr Hill Chase.

Firefighters showed pupils specialist equipment and described the scenarios and emergencies they might be needed attend.

PLT Southend Academies works with youngsters who have been permanently excluded and with challenging behaviour, to help them reach their full potential.
