The Snows in Cumbria – 2013

21st June 2018

We were deployed by Cumbria Fire and Rescue and operated from Millom Fire Station for 3 days, assisting Duddon and Furness MRT to rescue 74 people from stranded cars on the A595 near Bootle. Our Hagglunds were the only vehicles able to operate in the huge snow drifts.

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.
