Joint Hovercraft Search and Rescue Exercise by British Rescue Crews


Fire fighters from across the UK came together recently to undertake a Joint Rescue Hovercraft Exercise, in Weston Bay on the Bristol Channel.


The exercise involved the British Fire & Rescue Service using their Griffon 380TD Hovercraft, to carry out various roles, such as mud rescue, causality recovery and  flood rescue. A wide range of rescue equipment assisted the crews which was carried onboard the hovercraft.


As well as the British Fire & Rescue Service other rescue operators in the UK include the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) who operate a fleet of Griffon 470TDs. A number of UK International Airports also operate Griffon Hovercraft in various rescue roles.
