West
Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service this morning deployed a crew of firefighters from Stanningley Fire Station in Leeds to assist with the flood relief operation in Gloucestershire. An emergency request was made in the early hours of this morning via the National Co-ordination Centre for assistance. Stanningley Green Watch and a senior fire and rescue officer were mobilised to Gloucester Fire Station at 3.26am, taking equipment capable of pumping seven tonnes of water per minute. From there the equipment was committed to priority operations by Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service, who are using crews and equipment from all over the country to deal with the rising water. Because West Yorkshire’s response had to be made at short notice, the crew who accompanied the equipment will be brought home later today and replaced by a crew of eight firefighters from Stanningley White Watch. They are expected to stay for the next two days. Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service will accommodate them near the scene of operations.
