Stephanie plans to join the army in the future and train to be on the front line. She says that the Uniformed Services course was an amazing, realistic experience; showing her just what’s involved in a range of services, including Ambulance, Fire, Police and Search & Rescue Helicopter.
“My favourite part was the time we spent with the Fire Service. We had lots of fun doing an exercise where we wore the full fireperson’s kit, including a blackened out mask. We had to complete a search of a house to see if it was occupied. It was exciting but also really exhausting! I have even more respect now for what people in the services do, the training they get and the commitment and dedication they have for their jobs.”
