RNLI FLOOD RESCUE
The RNLI flood rescue team consists mainly of volunteers from lifeboat stations round the coast who are specially trained in flood and swift water rescue techniques. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to deploy to flooding in the UK, Ireland and abroad. They can respond to a flood anywhere in the UK within 6 hours. They have been much involved in the rescue and evacuation of Cumbrian flood victims. The Flood Rescue Team relies upon voluntary donations and is kindly supported by Toolstation. The team does not receive government funding for responding to UK floods.
Please support our Valuation afternoon at Long Sutton village hall on Wednesday 24th February and other events throughout the year. Flag week is from 18th-23rd April. Volunteers would be hugely welcome!
