Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) is holding a Public Information Evening on Tuesday, February 5, at 7pm in Loughry Campus about its new Learning & Development Centre currently under construction at Desertcreat.

Phase 1 of the project - costing in the region of £4.8m - is entering its final months of construction and NIFRS would like to provide residents and businesses within the local area with an update on the next phase of the project.

A presentation outlining progress to date on Phase 1 and the way forward in regard to Phase 2 will be given by representatives from NIFRS.

There will also be an opportunity for those attending to ask any questions, seek further information and share your views on the Learning & Development Centre at Desertcreat.

Firefighter training is expected to start at Desertcreat in the summer.
