TWFRS LTD

What is TWFRS LTD?

TWFRS LTD is a wholly internal training company, set up to bring value and support our service and communities.

All revenue/profits benefit the service and will be utilised accordingly.

Our business vision is to build off the wealth of training and operational experience to offer a catalogue of training opportunities ranging from basic to more significant technical competencies.

Fire safety practices and competence link work and home and it’s great to be able to share the story at work and beyond.
