April 2003

During a recent Sales and Marketing Conference, Luxfer’s sales managers became firefighters for half a day thanks to the training centre at Staffordshire Fire Brigade.

The sales managers were put through their paces at a three hour training session where they donned the full fire fighters uniform together with the full Breathing Apparatus kit in order to gain an appreciation of the advantages the light-weight composite cylinders provide for that market.

They were then led to the training firehouse in pairs where they had to negotiate their way through a variety of obstacles, in varying degrees of darkness, relying only on a guide rope and team work to get them through.

Staffordshire Fire Service offer a whole range of conference and training facilities. For details visit their website at: www.staffordshire.gov.uk
