Callout 630

Posted on Wednesday Aug 23, 2017

At 23:45 on Tuesday night (just after the crew had finished their weekly training) HM Coastguard tasked LNR to various flood and swiftwater related incidents in the North West of N. Ireland.
LNR deployed teams from all three stations, this included flood first responders, swift water rescue technicians and shore crew to the area. LNR worked with NIFRS, NIAS & HART personnel throughout the night and early morning until the teams were stood down.
The crew and members of LNR would like to thank all those involved in the SAR operations through the night and we would like to say a special thanks to the NIFRS team in Newtownstewart for the hospitality shown to us when the teams were stood down. This was greatly appreciated by all in attendance. LNR teams were back in base 07:00hrs
Our thoughts are with all those effected by the flash flooding.
