New kit to rescue
FLOOD rescue operations across the county will benefit from a new, top-of-the-range water rescue unit.
The all-wheel-drive vehicle replaces a previous smaller vehicle and is designed to tow the county's rescue boats and carry equipment used in responding to water rescue incidents.
This includes a mud rescue platform, rescue sled and drysuits, plus changing and decontamination facilities and a side awning for shelter in bad weather.
After the Gloucestershire floods in 2007, one of the main objectives of the fire and rescue service's Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) was to improve further the county's water rescue response – something the new vehicle tackles.
