IT was a case of delving into cyberspace for Buckfastleigh's firefighters at their latest drill night, as crew got to grips with a virtual training simulator.

Crew welcomed Nick and Andy from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue's training department, who brought along the Incident Command (IC) training simulator.

The vehicle is preloaded with hundreds of virtual incidents which are used to test an Incident Command qualified firefighter and provide the opportunity to manage incidents of different types and challenges.

'Nick and Andy facilitated an excellent session which was enjoyed by all' a spokesman for Buckfastleigh Fire Station said.
