ABSTRACT
Mid and West Wales Fire Brigade firefighters are receiving online European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) training as part of the service's drive to modernise its IT systems. The Brigade, which covers two-thirds of Wales, is offering training to all its 1,400 employees and has obtained ECDL-accredited test centre status as part of the project. IT upgrades, such as a remote-access system for safety-record data, were a major reason behind the training. Firefighters also regularly use computers to analyse trends in arson and fire incidents.
