Get fit and active with Healthy Walks in 2018

Are you looking to take a bit more exercise in 2018?

We have a programme of FREE healthy walks that take place right across Mid Sussex and they're a great way to stay in shape, meet new friends and enjoy the beautiful Mid Sussex countryside.

All our walks are led by trained walk leaders. In this video, the wonderful Marianne Greenwood from East Grinstead talks about how much people enjoy her healthy walks in the town and how everyone is getting fit and enjoying their time together.

Walking is a great form of exercise with many health benefits such as reducing high blood pressure, lowering the risk of certain types of cancer and heart disease, and helping to control body weight. Walking can also be great for mental health and to escape the stresses of everyday life.

Let West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service provide all your fire training needs

It’s a shocking statistic but 60-70% of businesses that have to close for one day after a fire never re-open.

West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service would like to ensure that every business in the county has the knowledge and resources to prevent a fire from occurring in the first place, but to also know how to protect themselves through business continuity if the worst happens.

The Fire Service has a dedicated team of instructors and officers able to provide training, advice and guidance on all aspects of commercial fire safety; from basic fire awareness and extinguisher training for all employees to dedicated fire warden training and fire risk assessment courses for appointed members of staff. Course information and booking options are available online by visiting www.westsussex.gov.uk/frsct

It’s extremely important to remember that your fire risk assessment is a working document and should be reviewed and updated regularly. Training courses can be tailor-made to suit your business and are designed to complement the findings in your fire risk assessment.

For those businesses that require specialist training, the fire service can also offer courses on breathing apparatus, working in confined spaces, working at height and water rescue training.

Courses can be delivered on site at your premises or nominated members of staff can attend one of our regular seminars held at fire stations throughout the county. All training courses are run by experienced service trainers, many of whom are operational firefighters.

For further information or for an informal discussion of your particular needs, please contact WSFRS’s Commercial Training Department on 01903 228400 or on frsct@westsussex.gov.uk.  Please quote: CN0117 when calling.
