Fire Engineering Students walk on fire

On the 2nd of October, five students from the BRE Centre of Fire Safety Engineering walked across 6 m of hot embers burning at over 650 °C to help raise money an event organized by the Edinburgh Zoo.

From left to right in the photo above, the brave and bold are: Nicolas Bal, Adam Cowlard, Adam Bittern, David Lange and Sam Grindrod

33 people in total walked across the fire raising over £7,000 for charities, with the fire engineers raising just over £500 themselves. The night involved a 1.5 hr training session which focused mainly on building confidence and focusing the mind (useful skills for research).
