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.
We are delighted to be able to kit each of our team members out with a water rescue PFD (personal flotation device or lifejacket) courtesy of AAA Logistics Ltd. The PFDs are essential for work in and around water which as a flood rescue team is a what we do! These have been purchased from Northern Diver Specialist rescue Equipment suppliers based in Appley Bridge near Wigan.
