The Team was quickly on station and readied the ERB and land rovers for deployment, while observing the procedures put in place due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.
Both land rovers with a crew of 8, deployed to Keswick and joined colleagues from Maryport Coastguard Rescue Team, Whitehaven Coastguard Rescue Team, Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service and mountain rescue.
As the team arrived on scene, welcoming information that the casualties had been located and were being recovered by the fire service, was received and teams were beginning to be stood down.
A great response by all deployed assets to secure a satisfying end result. However, it is very important that people remain cautious of the weather, especially if you are thinking of venturing out on the water.
Operations Manager Mike Messenger said:
“Those involved in todays incident have been very lucky, the weather wasn’t the best on Derwent Water and neither was the water conditions.” “please ensure that you check the weather before heading out onto the water, regardless if it is at sea or part of an inland water way, be prepared and carry the correct safety equipment”
