LIFE is a local intervention scheme, which aims to give direction and focus to young people. The training scheme encourages self-esteem, motivation, confidence and gives the youngsters an insight into the life in the London Fire Brigade.
LIFE has been running in Dagenham for 3 years now and has recently been rolled out to other Boroughs across London. I was impressed by the high standards achieved and we were invited to watch re-enactments of emergency situations and daily hazards our fire fighters take in their stride. So often than not we take the Emergency Services for granted – we would be truly lost without them, everyday of their life they put their lives at risk to save others.
