FIREFIGHTERS are in desperate need of the public's help in sourcing scrap cars for them to practise their road accident skills.
Since the Government launched the car scrappage scheme last year, donations of old vehicles to St Albans Fire Station have nearly completely dried up.
It's vital that the crews are able to maintain their skills with hydraulic cutting and rescue equipment for when they are called upon at a serious road accident scene.
In particular, the firefighters need to get used to new vehicle stabilisation equipment which they have recently received but are unable to practise with.

Anyone who thinks they can help should contact the station on 01727 818919.
