Team on standby for NWAS (Manchester)

With continuing snowfalls throughout Greater Manchester this afternoon and into the early evening, our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE was contacted by NWAS (Manchester) Emergency Control Centre to place the team on standby for snow-related incidents.

Barely had Garry discussed this with our Deputy Leader Geoff Seddon, when we received a call from NWAS (Lancashire) to extricate an RRV vehicle which was stuck on snow in Darwen (and as is the way with these things, we were immediately stood down).

Coincidentally our Team Leader at this same time was in contact on another phone with Cornwall Search & Rescue Team discussing how the Bolton team is integrated with NWAS Manchester and Lancashire, what better way to show the integration than a callout in the middle of a phonecall!
