Merseyside Fire and Rescue excersise 20th May








Merseyside fire and rescue held "Operation Manta" on the River Mersey today, it was a combined air/sea rescue excersise involving one of the MErsey Ferries, Snowdrop and an RAF Seaking from RAF Valley. A ferry evacuation was carried out after a simulated fire, the fast ribs and jestski`s were involved. The Helicopter winched people off the ferries rear deck. The tug Svitzer Stanlow was in attendance as a fire tug with her Monitors in action.

Was a very interesting hour!! ;-)
