On Wednesday 31 July, Nottinghamshire Police's volunteer cadets visited Mansfield Fire Station, where they took part in a number of activities to gain a better insight into both organisations' lines of work. The cadets had the opportunity to get hands-on with emergency equipment and take part in team-based activities and challenges.

Schools and Early Intervention Officer PC John Graham, who helped organise the visit, said: "This was a great opportunity for the police cadets to get a taste of what it's like to train in the Fire Service. This was a chance for them to get hands-on experience and to meet other cadets from bases accross Nottinghamshire.

"It highlights the great partnership work that is going on behind the scenes to deliver experiences from a broader spectrum of agencies."

Cadet Co-ordinator, Charlie Flatters, added: "This was a great opportunity for our volunteer cadets to gain an in-depth insight into the fantastic work our local emergency services do on a day-to-day basis, as well as having fun getting hands-on with some of the equipment.

"I would like to say a massive thanks to our Worksop Unit Cadet Leaders who helped organise this in partnership with Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service. Our cadets will continue to learn more about the work of our colleagues in the Fire and Rescue Service as our first joinede Fire and Police Cadet Unit opens in September.

"The other Police Cadet Units will also benefit from this new partnership, with regular inputs from the Fire Services Prevention Team."
