Joint Training

With landslips happening in other parts of the country this week, Swanage Coastguard Rescue Officers were invited down to Swanage Fire Station to work through the Fire Services protocol on landslips.

It's quite surprising how two emergencies services work differently so better to get things right in the training room so if an incident occurs both services will come together for the best of a casualty.

Towards the end of the session the team members disappeared to look at the fire appliances and were rather impressed with the data terminals in the trucks compared to our pen and paper.

Tonight's training session will feed into a multi agency meeting tomorrow morning on the landslip issues in and around Swanage.

Thanks to Phil and Officers at Swanage Fire Station.
