Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service

“I am proud to say that I have been involved with the 999 Academy since its conceptual beginning in North Devon. The original idea was for a collaborative approach to supporting young people in developing their skills and attributes to become inclusive and supportive members of society and their communities. The 999 Academy has achieved this and more with a great number of the participants using their experience to further their academic and vocational careers. Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service has always recognised the value in exploring new ways of delivering community activity and the 999 Academy provides this in a way that no singular organisation can, utilising the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm of staff from collective Services means that workloads are manageable and participants benefit from a varied input. If you have the opportunity to become involved in a 999 Academy I strongly urge you to do so – the benefits are unique.”
