2019 Incident #20: 11th August 06:41 – River Kent

Team called by NWAS and Cumpol. Team requested to attend a possible missing person incident on the river Kent near Sedgwick. Due to the nature of the incident we received assistance from both Duddon & Furness MRT and Cave Rescue Organisation who each provided 5 additional SRT trained personell. All 3 emergency services were in attendance along with MCA support and Bay Rescue. Teams stood down after searches conducted along river banks and the estuary. It was good to see multi agency services working alongside each other as well as combined MRT’s and CRO operating together. Many thanks to the MCA aircrew for the cake and the Fire Rescue Service for the brew.
