Following a planning process that began in late 2011, the CRS tonight began safety patrols in the area around the River Lagan in Belfast City Centre. This is the first step in an ongoing process to provide assistance to those in difficulty in that area. The CRS Belfast Unit is currently leading the way in providing this service in support of the police and other emergency services with the support of CRS members from around the province.

Water Response Training

The last weekend of July saw another 12 ALSAR members trained to Water Response 2 when colleagues from NORSAR traveled some 1200 miles round trip to assist in the delivery training to CRS members.
The course was delivered around and in the River Roe near Limavady and enhanced the ability of the CRS to respond to water based emergencies.  With the hot weather we had some concerns about water levels but there was no need to worry as after two days of thunder and rain the Sperrin provided plenty of heavy flow.  Day 1 was extremely warm and it was cooler to be in the water. Day 2 wasn’t as hot but the day ended with heavy rain and thunder overhead.  Training was attended by members of NORSAR's SRT team and we hope they will return shortly as part for further training exercises.  Our thanks to our volunteers for taking part and to Paul and Greg for their hard work and dedication over the course of the weekend.
