Braintree and Witham Times: Lewis Kemp and Louis Wild Lewis Kemp and Louis Wild

Climbing up a fire training tower or looking for casualties in a confined space is not for the faint hearted.

These are some of the fears teenagers have to overcome on the young firefighter cadet course, a mini crash course into life as a firefighter.

See this week's paper for full story and pictures.
