Smokeless fire drill and fake blood. Posted on July 10, 2012 A sight to greet the fire woman. Bruises, blood and blisters by theatrical make-up students at Stroud College. The call has gone out. Arrival of first appliance. She’s here. Briefed by commander and assessed. On with the breathing apparatus. Final check before entering the unknown. And they’re off. First child rescued. More appliances arrive. At the ready. Paramedic attention on the muster point. All rescued. Debriefing. Tall tails from the heroes. All’s well.
