Amazing images that show emergency services training exercise in Cardiff look like disaster movie
It looks like something out of a post-apocalyptic Welsh disaster movie – but these are images of a multi-agency emergency services training exercise conducted in Cardiff.
South Wales Police and the South Wales Fire and Rescue Services held the “staged incidents” as a training exercise alongside other emergency service colleagues.
The public were made aware of the training exercise at Gleider House, Llanishen on 23rd October 2021, but the images of the exercise have only been released now.
South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said that it gave the emergency services the opportunity to test and perfect their coordination and response procedures.
The exercise simulated a high rise building fire and involved a significant number of fire service vehicles alongside other blue light services.
Beginning at 9:00am the exercise was concluded by 4:00pm. To minimise any disturbances caused by the exercise, responding vehicles travelled to the location without sounding their sirens or using the blue lights.
A spokesperson for South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said: “Practical training sessions for emergency services are crucial to ensure they are well-equipped to respond to a wide range of emergencies.
“We would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding while this training exercise was being carried out.”
