Project Response

Project Response is a long term project run at Bracknell and Wokingham College; it mainly benefits the Uniformed Public Service (UPS) students but it is also used to educate the local community on road safety. The vehicle is used for role plays, general training, open events and public events including road safety and media opportunities. For a taste of the kind of things we do with the vehicle check out the video below.

The car was donated in January 2015 by a local couple, one of whom is a Sergeant in the Metropolitan Police Service. So far more than £1,500 has been donated to the project along with many donations of equipment to turn the vehicle into what it is today. Students and staff have worked together to turn the vehicle into a fully functioning emergency service training vehicle. To the best of our knowledge we are the only Further Education College in the country to have a working emergency service training vehicle.
