2015-24 Flood Team Standby

Friday 12th June 2015

Flood Team put on standby to assist OXSAR who were also on standby to support Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue. Potential flooding was predicted over the weekend due to forecasts of heavy rainfall in Oxfordshire.

Team stood down on Sunday 14th with no flood occurrence.

Over a dozen of WILSAR’s already busy volunteers have carried out extra training to become Level 2 Flood Responders. Extra training throughout the year keeps their authorisation current and their skills honed. The Flood Team are on call 24/7, in addition to their normal WILSAR duties and can be called upon to assist anywhere nationally, representing WILSAR in the event of flooding.
