The Gibraltar Fire and Rescue Service (GFRS) conduct Road Traffic Collision (RTC) training on a regular basis as part of the Operations Department Training program. RTC training consists of scenarios at our training area at Bufadero with multiple cars and specialised equipment.
In order to simulate the most realistic conditions firefighters often train with ‘live’ casualties (see side panel ‘Live’ RTC Exercise for photos), prior to any such exercise a Risk Assessment must be made in order to ensure that the casualty, usually an off duty colleague is completely safe.
Road Traffic Collision Instructors
The GFRS has three Road Traffic Collision instructors who have undergone two weeks of rigorous theoretical and practical training in Moreton-in-the-Marsh, obtaining the vital RTC qualifications.
