We Don’t Just Search for Missing People

6 January 2014  |  News  |  , ,

Monday, 6th January 2014. We don’t just search for missing people.

Following a recent urgent request for help from a local Flood Warden in Wilton, Salisbury, team members spent the afternoon filling sand bags to protect The High Street and properties in Crow Lane, which were at immediate risk from flooding.

Wilton’s stream, normally only six inches deep, was flowing steadily at five feet deep and just inches from breaching its banks. WILSAR volunteers proceeded to use their control vehicle to help distribute the bags along the stream, gratefully assisted by local residents.

A very hard but rewarding day’s work for all involved. More sand was ordered and WILSAR remained on standby to assist further.
