Fire Service Exercise - Oaklands School
29th March 2018


Dear Householder,

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to inform you of a number of upcoming exercises, which are to be, carried out at Oakland’s School on the evenings of:   

Wednesday the 18th of April 2018                                         


The planned exercises are to take place between the hours of 7pm-9pm, however you may see a build-up of fire service vehicles in the area from 5pm onwards.

The aim of the exercises being held, is to test the operational response of a number of crews, to a simulated fire involving a large and complex building, with a number of people unaccounted for.

To facilitate the exercise and to add an element of realism to the exercise, synthetic smoke is to be used to fill part of the building, please do not be alarmed if you see smoke coming from the building between the hours of 6pm-9pm, this will all be part of the exercise.

We do not envisage any inconvenience to local homeowners in the area, however we apologise in advance for any noise or disturbance that may occur during the exercise.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service prides its self on providing a first class fire and rescue capability to the people of Shropshire. To continue to provide this service it is vital that operational personnel have the opportunity to practice their skills at sites like the School.

If you have any questions for require more information, Contact Simon Griffiths 07816293258 or

Tony Talbot 07816 293413.
