12/09/2018 @ 09.40 Team tasked by Humber CGOC to attend an injured 69 year old female who having fallen aboard a cruiser at Berney Arms moorings, had sustained arm and shoulder injuries.  In agreement between the Ambulance Service (East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust) and the Broads Authority, the casualty was taken aboard the latter's  launch and brought to Goodchild Marine in Burgh Castle.  There the casualty was made comfortable and cared for by the team and the staff of Goodchild Marine while awaiting arrival of the ambulance to convey to hospital.  Thanks to all concerned for their valuable and much appreciated assistance, we all wish the casualty a speedy recovery. #124/18

I suspect Richard that not all formulites are as well read as thee and I  Evil Grin   I also suspect if you or I were injured at Berney arms we would be urging our rescuers to take us in the opposite direction given that that's the way to two pubs Playful

Indeed Bill, do you remember the good old days when yachts would go aground on Breydon and someone would offer a lift off in 6 hours Smile

Yes, and coming through Gt.Yarmouth dragging a mud weight or two behind you, because you did not have a engine, before going on to Breydon shrouded in fog so thick that you lost sight of the last post at just about the time you saw the next.  It's a wonder we are alive isn't it  Blush

Billmaxted “just the wholly ignorant types who make the response, but then if you are sitting in a call centre in hull what do you expect. “
Who are the wholly ignorant types who make the response ?

There is nothing worse when you need help urgently than speaking to someone who has no knowledge of The Broads and quite frankly doesn't even know where the Broads are.   What chance do you have.   It happened to us once.

Bill in the case of the incident at Oulton I don't think there was any case of anyone crying Wolf. We were out drinking in Oulton and around midday the word was about that the Stardust had run aground, we were out for a good time after that before returning to our boat moored on the pontoon at the yacht station.At that point there was no sign of any emergency services in attendance. The Stardust was around the corner from the Commodore adjacent to Caldecott Road and not visible from the Yacht station so I guess right up in the corner there. It was quite a while after we returned that we heard the first Sirens and saw emercency services parked on Caldecott Road, I guess they were there for around 1 hour maximum and shortly after that the Stardust was towed out of the corner and brought to the Yacht Station.
I would estimate that well over an hour had passed between us first hearing the rumours and the first emergency vehicle arriving.
I understand the Starsust is used primarily for disabled tours,it was a blustery day with the wind blowing down the length of the Broads from the West, as you say there would have been 2 experienced Watermen on board and I guess they were the ones to raise the alarm.

if it is to be it is up to me.

I was not being unkind just factual, Government Policy has effective denuded the East coast from the Wash to the Thames Estuary of emergency contact centres with local knowledge.  The broads is really a very safe environment but does have dangers all of it's own.  There are real risks when actions are taken or priorities set by those without understanding of local conditions.  The same could probably be said of Essex rivers or North Norfolk.  I'm not even sure that we have customs and immigration officers who know our patch either, as we used to have.  It also cuts both ways, stuck on a really sticky mud bottom, so you don't right on a raising tide, despite being in clear sight of the bank is not something to be dismissed.

Hylander/ bilmaxted ; whatever the emergency, the origin is from caller nearest the scene. The call handler then uses whatever knowledge he or she is armed with to initiate the required response ( both using their  professional judgement and set protocol) . The “response” then comes from Fire, Health , Police , water safety as deemed necessary. Non of the “ response “ are ignorant types nor anyone involved in the whole chain of events hopefully leading to a swift and successful conclusion. I would suggest the ignorant types are more likely to be those who don’t really have much of an understanding of how the emergency services operate.

21/09/2018 08.58 BST Team paged by Humber CGOC to a man in the river at Acle Bridge.  To RV with Winterton CRT at scene.  Ten minutes into the tasking a stand down came through.  It would appear that the man in question had been recovered from the river somewhat promptly, so a good result.  #131/18
