The team have been assisting emergency services with the moorland fires at Winter Hill near Bolton.
LASAR team members were kindly loaned a Hagglund from Blackhurst Plant Hire Limited which some of our members have operated for a number of years, which enabled them to assist emergency services up on Winter Hill.
Our team members have specialist skills working alongside emergency services, which came in very useful throughout the week, enabling the team to transport water, equipment and fire fighters to the critical areas.
The crew manager from Horwich Fire Station said that the teams ''professionalism and equipment enabled them do their job safely. It was hard work on a very hot day but what a great crew, it was a pleasure to meet you all.''
Thanks to all the guys that gave up their day jobs to give their time on Winter Hill. Great job guys!
