Great multi agency exercise earlier today! Today we took part in a joint exercise along with Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service, RNLITorbay, South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (HART Team) at Torquay Marina. The exercise was to run a joint operation where Paignton Pleasure Cruises brought Liberty Lass into Torquay marina on fire (not a real one). To ascertain what the incident was, how many casualties there were and their location. The officers of the day that were in charge then commanded the incident by working closely together. We managed to get some pictures of the day and hope to add some more. We also had the pleasure of Casualties Union who were our actors for the day. Thanks for all who attended and took part.

Torbay RNLI all-weather lifeboat was tasked just after 2pm this afternoon to assist a 32' sailing vessel which had suffered an engine fire and lost all power 8.5 miles SE of Brixham in Lyme Bay. Dart lifeboat volunteer crew also responded and were in attendance. Although the fire had been extinguished, the vessel had no power and was unable to return to port; on arrival the Severn Class all-weather lifeboat volunteer crew were able to tow the 32' vessel safely back to Brixham. Photographs show Torbay all-weather lifeboat on scene and towing the vessel (photo credit: Nigel Crang/Torbay RNLI) #rnlitorbay Dart RNLI Lifeboat
