This evening (Wed 12th Feb) On Call firefighters from Barnstaple and Woolacombe took part in an RTC drill.
A big thank you to Newbery Recycling for setting up and allowing us to use their site and cars.
We were confronted with a three car pile up with 4 casualties. Two seriously injured casualties and one less injured but with a baby in the car.
The OIC of the first pump was a firefighter who is going through the stages of becoming a Crew Manager. He had to wait several minutes for the second pump, and even longer for the third. This is normal in real incidents as pumps often need to travel from neighbouring stations. The crews worked very well together and safely removed the casualties within the "Golden Hour"
