Flood Rescue Team News

Here is a news article from the RNLI website regarding a couple of lifeboat volunteers from Llandudno and Conwy.

Conwy RNLI volunteers return to North Wales after rescuing Cockermouth flood victims

Jobi Hold, an RNLI volunteer at Llandudno and Greg Donald, a volunteer with the RNLI crew at Conwy, have relived the devastation they witnessed after being called to assist with the flood rescue operation in Cumbria. Greg is a member of a newly formed group of North Wales volunteers who are trained in swift water rescue and can be called upon in a moment’s notice to respond to emergency situations.
As well as being a member of this new group, Jobi is also part of the RNLI’s national Flood Rescue Team, which the RNLI set up following its involvement with flood relief in Mozambique in March 2000.

As you can see the skills of a lifeboat volunteer have evolved in the last 45 years.

I have deleted the above comment because i recieved an email from a Life Boat crew member saying that the comment is untrue.

I am supporter of the RNLI and i hope i haven't upset anyone to much publishing the comment.
