YOUNG people in Inverclyde are set to take part in a 'fire skills' course in Port Glasgow.

The five-day course is being run by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) in March, with funding and support from Inverclyde Council.

The five-day course will be attended by ten young peoplein March.

The aims of the project are for the young people to learn important life skills including safety, discipline, respect, CPR, communication, and teamwork.

A similar course was delivered by the SFRS in East Renfrewshire in November, alongside the East Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire, and Inverclyde (ERRI) Community Action Team, with support from Police Scotland and the Scottish Ambulance Service.
