YOUNGSTERS from Wrexham took part in North Wales Fire and Rescue Service's Phoenix course.
The Phoenix project is designed to enhance skills such as teamwork and communication, while helping the youngsters to gain self-confidence.
Seven youngsters from the Wrexham area took part in sessions based at Chirk Fire Station.
During the week, the students were given the opportunity to see the work carried out by North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and were allowed to take part in drills.
In addition, outdoor activities were arranged as well as a visit to the control room to see how emergency calls are received and appliances mobilised.
Phil Owen, county safety manager for Wrexham, said: “I am glad to say that this has been another great success for this exciting project.
“The aim of the course is to assist the youngsters in becoming more motivated and positive about themselves, which in turn has the effect of making them better citizens.
“We are hoping these children will feel that they have gained something positive from the Phoenix project and feel it will be of benefit to them in the future.”
