Phoenix fire project 'redirects energy' of teenagers

A character-building project run by firefighters is having a positive impact on teenagers, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service has said.

It is aimed at young people who may have been involved in arson and hoax calls or those with low self-esteem and poor communication skills.

During the week-long course, students learn activities like hose-running drills and fighting fires.

Phoenix Project coordinator Pam Roberts said the course helped youngsters "redirect their energy".
