999 Academy Students Support Community Events, Barnstaple

October 4 2018

Students from the Barnstaple 999 Academy volunteered their time over the last two weekends to support community events in the town.

For the Barnstaple Carnival our students provided safety cover by staffing road closures and provided an “Incident Response Team” under the supervision of event managers. During the evening they used radio equipment, engaged with members of the public and give assistance where required.

During the Barnstaple Marathon, 999 Academy students were tasked with the security of competitors’ personal effects, and assisted in the Aid Station, as well as giving information to spectators.

Organisers for both events praised the 999 Academy students for their professionalism, polite manners and work ethic.

Look out for our students on Armistice Day when they will be taking part in the Remembrance Parade at Rock Park Barnstaple (they are already practising their marching!).
