23rd September 2017 Steward Training Venue: St Leonards Greek Orthodox Church http://www.hastings-orthodox-church.co.uk/
The session covered:
- assessing health and safety on site;
- how teams are deployed, static and mobile;
- NATO phonetic and IC codes usage;
- radio protocols;
- emergency codes;
- vehicles escorting;
- parade management;
- stage management;
- lost children.
Students planned their own event, looking at deployment, safety issues and vehicle transport. We had a number of small exercises including ‘car escorting’ and ‘traffic management.’
Feedback from the attendees was positive; the students were offered a chance to continue their training with a “live” session in February 2018.
