Elsea Gardens provides training opportunity for local fire crew

Tilia staff were excited to see the local fire crew visit our Elsea Gardens development. Members of the Bourne Fire Station attended site to familiarise themselves with the layout of the newest homes to be introduced to the beautiful town of Bourne.

This phase of the development was at an early stage in the build process, and therefore the fire fighters took the opportunity to carry out some valued training in the first homes nearing completion. Over a period of two hours, the crew undertook mind-mapping exercises in one of our Palmerston homes. Blindfolded to simulate poor visibility due to smoke, and with the use of breathing apparatus, the firefighters had to blindly navigate the three-storey property and get their mock casualties to safety outside.

Liam Mountford from Bourne Fire Station comments: “Bourne Fire Station would like to thank Tilia Homes for this vital opportunity. They provided a faultless training exercise that is rare to come by. Crew members not only enjoyed this experience but also took some learning points away that might help save a life or a home one day.”

Elsea Gardens is a stunning collection of new two, three and four bedroom homes, perfectly located near the charming market town of Bourne and in close proximity to the cathedral city of Peterborough.

The Palmerston, our house type where the training took place, is a charming three-bedroom home set over three floors and currently available from £242,500. Featured on the ground floor is an open-plan kitchen/dining area alongside a separate living room with French doors leading out to the garden. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom, whilst the top floor is home to a delightful main bedroom with en-suite.
