Fire­fight­ers mak­ing the cut

Bray People - - NEWS -

FIRE SER­VICE teams from all over Ire­land and Eng­land were in Bray last weekend for a car cut­ting com­pe­ti­tion.

There were two teams from the UK, a team from Cork, and teams from Car­low, Laois, Bray and Grey­stones.

They spent two full days at the Bray de­pot cut­ting cars with mem­bers of the pub­lic pop­ping by to have a look.

It was all part of a na­tional car cut­ting com- pe­ti­tion, which has an in­ter­na­tional sec­tion.

There were three cat­e­gories - rapid ex­trac­tion, com­plex ex­trac­tion and trauma. Car­low won the rapid and com­plex cat­e­gories. Grey­stones did very well and came sec­ond in trauma.
