Training Exercise On River Ouse, York

18th September 2013

On the evening of Wednesday 18th September, between 1900-2100hrs, fire crews from North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service will be participating in a training exercise on the River Ouse, in York.

The exercise scenario will involve a number of passengers from a YorkBoat ending up in the river and requiring rescuing.

Fire crews from York and Acomb will be involved in the exercise, with other members of fire service staff playing the role of the causalities in the river.

Watch Manager Dave Ashman from North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue who organised the exercise said: “This exercise provides us with an excellent opportunity to practice our water rescue capabilities in a realistic environment, and work in partnership with users of the local waterways such as the YorkBoat.”
