Cockermouth Floods – October 2009

21st June 2018

Probably one of the biggest natural disasters the team has been involved in. Working with Cumbria Fire and Rescue we completed numerous rescues in the Hagglund, working through the nights, with team members sleeping in the vehicles or on the fire station floor.

In the event of an emergency dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard (coastal rescue) or Fire & Rescue (land rescue).

For advice call the Team Duty Officer on the 24/7 Direct Number: 0300 999 0333 and if required we will inform the appropriate service.
